I'm not sure. They do look exactly the same.... In the photos I've seen.

In other news - got stranded in my driveway this morning with exactly the same issue. So either the issue wasn't in fact the battery or there's something wrong with the electrics that's frying the battery. Tow truck booked....

Re: 12v AGM oem battery replacement

Make sure all the earth wires are tight especially from the alternator to the body and the ribbon one rhs under near the manifild. Mine had these issues of not starting, was towed back to jeep and ribbon one was burnt off due to the heavy alternator earth being loose and not able to carry the load.

Re: 12v AGM oem battery replacement

Thanks nicjak. It was the earths. They've removed them all, cleaned them up and reconnected. Everything is fine. Sorry to hijack. But I can confirm the 49agm federal battery referenced above is fine and was not the problem.
