    Worry about your alternator more than your battery.

    X3 on the alt if your truck has a 105 amp alt get a 145+ alt your battery will thank you it should be a direct plug and play. And longer belt

    no matter what do not use a cheap battery,...a good 900ccc bat like in the diesels and good alt will be a good setup
