If you have a smaller engine I would use the top as a base. Otherwise the battery is to compact for the fitting in the engine compartment. The top, which seemingly protects teh connectors etc, is actually designed to serve as a base. Just look at the very easy-to-understand labeling.
And, yes, I did not utilize it at first and had to take it back out...
They also tend to take a lot lower temperature extremes, higher amp surges, and bouncing around vs. the average wet battery.
I wouldn't recommend anything BUT an Optima in a rough-country offroad vehicle such as a Jeep, forestry truck, etc.
I have a Jeep Rubicon fitted with a winch and offroad suspension & gear. It gets bounced around HARD on rocks and rough roads, and run up and down at steep angles. I drive it in the MN winter too.
This year, after 2 years of 4-wheeling, and 2 winters, my 2 year old "GOLD" battery from the local parts house died. It was 35 below zero and I really didn't want to worry about jump starting my Jeep. Of course it was dead. Too much bouncing, too much winching, and too cold = dead wet cell.
I've had these before but they used to be way more expensive than the average truck battery. Not so any more. This was just as cheap on Amazon as the pricey premium battery locally.
ONE PIECE OF ADVICE: Amazon offers "standard" packaging and "Frustration-Free" packaging at the same price. I don't know the difference, but opted for the "Frustration Free". That just sounds better. It came in a really nice, heavy duty box with cardboard padding all the way around, and plastic cladding on both ends. Somehow they still managed to drop it and bang up one corner of my battery. The plastic squared-off edge on the bottom was broken, but didn't appear to be through the cell case. It didn't affect mounting it luckily.
I can't imagine what condition it would have been in had I gotten the "standard" package. Probably ruined. I should have sent it back, but needed the battery bad so I kept it. Frustrated and all.
I bought this for my 2002 Honda Accord. I had compared it to other batteries and was going to buy it local but when I looked around similarly priced batteries were not nearly rated as high. This particular battery would have cost me at least $50 more locally so I ordered it from Amazon. Shipped quickly and was at my door two days later. The packaging was in the frustration free packaging and it was indeed that. No problems that I could see and very easy to get to.
Anybody who is worried whether they can do this by themselves shouldn't be. If you are at all mechanically inclined, this is the simplest job on your car you can do yourself. Just unhook the battery harness. Remove the cables. Potentially scrub them a little if they have rust. Spray on some battery protector, and hook the cables back up. I had to use the riser that was included with the battery for it to fit in my car, but that was easy and straightforward.
Battery works great. Provides plenty of power and starts the car right away with no issue. Actually, this is an improvement over the battery I had before which was from AAA.
This past week I had to have the car jumped multiple times. Two mechanics have now said the battery is too small for my car and that I should be using a Group 34 battery. I contacted Optima once again and explained that multiple mechanics said it was the wrong battery, and that the battery compartment is sized for a Group 34 battery, and that my car was not starting on cold days, but they adamantly insisted this Group 25 battery was the right battery for my car because that's what their database said. All the other facts didn't matter. Ugh.
So, either Optima is right and their batteries are total junk, or (more likely) the company is recommending incorrectly sized batteries and refusing to fix their database. Either way, it's was an aggravating waste of my time and effort. Reading the comments on Amazon, I see I'm not the only person who was recommended the wrong battery.
Don't trust the OPTIMA recommended battery list.
Don't expect any assistance from Optima if you are having issues.
While Optima has terrible customer support, Amazon on the other hand apologized for the inconvenience and refunded my money.
