Battery is dead need help ASAP on replacment
 
Guys I'm in a bind my jeep would not start and pulled out the volt meter and sure enough the battery is dead and I have appointments all day and need the jeep. We dont have a mopar place anymore closest is an hour from here so I am stuck with the usual place like Pep Boys etc... I really dont want an Optima as their quality have gone down hill since being bought out a while back. I really want an Oddyssey battery and the Sears Platinum group is actually made by Oddyssey but I have no idea which one will fit. I need one that is an exact replacement to where when it drops in the Neg/Pos terminals are on the correct side, etc. ALSO (I'm at work now) need a pic of our battery so I can be sure of this.

Thanks guys I really need help ASAP

Thanks guys the LX SRT's are in the trunks but ours is the same as the 5.7 location. Joe the only problem I see with the Oddyssey is that the terminals are switched how do you get around that? Am I being stupid or do you simply just turn the batter the other way and all is good. So 34R will work on group 94R?

The battery doesnt have to sit that way Wade. Just flip it. :)

yeah wade it should be ok to flip it as long as all the cables are long enough

What I mean by flipping it is switching the battery. Turn it around.

I hope there is some play in the Pos/Neg lines to pull it over that Sears battery to reach the terminals do you guys know if there is some play or slack to pull on?

Call me stupid but cant you just turn around the whole battery itself so that the correct terminals are on the correct sides?
