I have a red top Optima with top posts. If you are putting the battery below the trunk, it is recommended that you do not get the Optima with the additional side posts for safety reasons.

If you think you will EVER want to move the mount to one of the alum. battery boxes with access through the trunk floor, then get a top post only battery. The ones with side posts shouldn't be used in a metal box.

Just something to think about if you have a choice when you are picking it up.

red top 34 and 34/78 models seem to be the one most are using AND you can get some fancy battery holders for them on ebay!

I have a Red Top w/top posts that I recently purchased from a Batteries Plus store in Marietta - Their price was the best - beat the AutoZone by about $15

I wanted this one because it would fit easily between the two rails in the trunk - I hung the plastic battery box from FFR below the trunk with an access panel - fits nicely

I can send pictures if you are interested
