Battery retrofit; Optima Red top into '06 WK Jeep

Some of the OEM batteries installed in 06 Jeep (WK) Grand Cherokees were faulty. I had some alarm system strangeness occur one night at 1:30am that woke the neighbors. 4 years duty was enough for me to seek a better replacement.

For those ~in the know~ Optima are some of the best lead/acid and gel batteries on the market.

In case your local Napa auto parts guy is a complete idiot, like mine, he ordered the wrong battery twice and then continued to tell me there is no such thing as the following part #: 8003-151 34R

Battery terminals must be tweaked (bent) every so slightly to avoid contact.
