Not quite the same, but that's about what I paid for a new Trojan deep cycle for the trailer a couple of weeks ago.....in Canadian.

Hope those are some nice batteries you're getting for that dollar.

Doug, at least you did not have to do what I did when I replaced them in my Ford, it needed a alternator replaced also.

Believe it or not- we did some searching and for batteries thy are identified as fitting the truck, these were the 2nd least expensive!

I had to install two batteries on my Silverado, the service department told me one was bad and the other one was weak. So two new batteries, it wasn't cheap

I just did the same thing for my 2007 Duramax 2500hd. I only use AGM batteries which start at about $200 a piece. Ouch..... But they sure work well and last as long as they are advertised for...... So far😀

LOL! Annual passes make all of the difference- we will just go for a couple hours. If the heat gets too bad, we'll bail. In both cases, the AP helps us not feel like we "wasted" a ticketed day.
