Just ordered one from ADVMachines. My OEM from June of 2003 is still doing the job, butt 8 years is too much to ask from any battery. Think I'll retire it to my museum of Over Extended Parts (along with my OEM LC8 water pump, fuel pump, and front rim, to name a few). This Shorai is so light you could carry a spare in the luggage for those long trips, if so inclined. Thanks for the writeup cyborg. Great addition to the HOW.
