It's a bit taller, I just don't want it to hit the hood since the posts aren't sunk in like the 96r ones have it.
You do not want the group 65 battery, The posts are reversed (positive on the left when installed) and it's too wide to fit in the tray.
A group 48 battery will fit. I'm running a Diehard group 48 AGM.
The group 48 battery has the posts as the 96R, and is the same width as the 96R, it is longer so you will need to remove the 2 tray adapters for the group 48 to fit and add a longer hold down strap, I used a piece of cargo strap from a ratcheting tie down.
