Hello - anyone have a recommendation for a non-OEM replacement battery? I can't determine the spec for the battery from any online resources so not sure what to shop for. Thanks in advance.

You should have some warranty left on the oem . also core charge is crazy high for batteries so be sure to take the bad one .

A couple of other considerations: battery case dimensions that closely approximate the OEM, and a minimum of 650 CCA to safely and sustainably power a winch and other electrical accessories. An underpowered replacement battery and lighter gauge cables are not the best ways to skimp -- pay a little more to get what you need.

Looking to buy
Optima red top battery is working excellent for me. My original battery broke in the first month, warrenty wanted me to buy the exact crap battery, bring them the receipt and I'll be refunded in blah blah days. Bite the bullet and get yourself an optima. This was two years ago that I got the new battery, just couple hours ago I got my stage 2 tune back, wanted to hear it rumble (been sitting in the garage since late fall and it was single digits last night) gave the glow plugs two cycles and she started right up.

Didn't start mine for two weeks. When I tried.......nothing. Doesn't seem like that amount of time should have been a problem. Never got below the 50s in the covered garage. Charged it and it fired right up. But now I'm spooked. I agree with cniemi28,
when I replace it it won't be with the same one.

That could be the difference as mine came with the winch package

The battery brand in my Roxor is an Excide and not sealed. I can see where some acid has leaked out on the top around those pop off covers. I've had poor performance with that brand and won't buy another.

I'd give a call to the dealer and see what they say. I know some have had the battery replaced under warranty, but your dealer actually has to put in a claim and they will need your miles and hours. Worst that can happen is Roxor denies it, but the dealer would probably have to run a battery test.

Standard battery, Only electrics added were an electric seat through 12 volt outlet and turn signal kit. Starts quickly after sitting for days in freezing weather. All if good.

My closest dealer is two hours away. Costco and Wal-Mart are only four miles from me. My battery actually has a Roxor price tag still stuck to it. $175. Wonder if the dealer had an issue with the original and replaced it from his parts department.

Found a Duracell battery at Sam's Club, group 34 with positive post on left, 800 CCA,
and the same dimensions as the OEM battery. $102. If my Roxor doesn't crank in a couple of weeks, I'll give this one a try.
