Something like a 70 aH and 500 - 600 CCA.

Bosch, Varta, Lucas, Yuasa.  Shop around for 4 or 5 year warranty.

on all our L200's we use 730CCA 90AH batteries, its about the biggest that will fit in the engine bay. and does wonders if you are the kinda person  who doesn't use the truck on a regular clockwork routine. as you all know, use keeps batteries alive.

I know some friends have 600ish batteries, there is a difference but, theirs still work,


as for brands, as nick said shop around, we use varta and halfords and JCB ones

You can get a Numax 110aH in there - the one I have is 1000CCA, cost around 75.
Numax also do a dual purpose 120aH, that's the same size as the 110.
