Will this Optima Fit?
 
Will the Red Top Optima 34R fit? I know it will fit but will the cable terminals reach the battery terminal leads? I'm curious because the WK's terminals are at a 90 degree angle.

I have to get a new battery by tomorrow so a quick answer would be appreciated. I'm very thankful.

I found this on Google. This guy bent the terminals. Is that safe? Lol.

Have you gone on optima website to see what they recommend for our rigs. This was on the when it goes to replace with list so I'm curious. I had one in my a previous car. Very
Good battery guy still has it with the car.

They don't have a battery that they recommend for WK's

The one I want has 800 CCA and 1000 CA. My WK only requires 730 CCA though.

Interstate in my WK now is dying after 2 years. I'm spending some money this time.

The battery is in. I bent the terminals. No problem.

Thanks once again Omelet.

I got the optima d27f. It fits without having to bend anything.

That's a Yellow Top. I wanted a good starting Red Top.

I bent mine straight to fit my RedTop. Works just fine. You can bend them back without a problem too. Just don't try it a bunch of times or you'll be buying new ones.

Autozone has an AGM battery that is a direct fit for the WK. I have one in my SRT.
