you dont need dimensions, SLI's ( car batteries ) come in group sizes. ours is a group size 34. just get a red top optima their are a few different ones but they are all extremely underrated.

Jared, i've got the same exact battery sitting in my garage waiting to put in.. did you need the little adapter kit thing they mention on their website? it helps the battery sit in stock location or some b.s. like that... i didnt bother taking a look to see if it would even fit yet cause so far i've assummed it wouldnt with out this "adaptor thing" they're mentioning.

Just write down the length and width of the plate the battery sits on, and how tall a battery the hold-down device will accomodate, and then compare those figures to the dimensions of batteries you look at in stores, to see how big a battery you can install.

yes you will need the adapter, but it came with my battery. take a picture of your battery, and i can tell you if you have it or not ...
