Your truck has an alternator that'll charge the battery :lol:

I've never bought a battery that wasn't ready to toss in the truck and go :dunno:

Good deal. I think I'll start checking those sites.

Picked it up and stuck it on the trickle charge real quick just to freshen her up. Gonna stick it in the truck after the green light comes on and then take my delco back for the core!

www.ebates.com is another great site. You get cash back for making purchases you'd have made anyway.

If you have to charge it to get cranking amps out of it you need to take it back.

Then your Delco was shit.

This is not news.

I replaced my red top after 11 years, and it was still working ok. I just thought it was time for a new one, because it was cranking a bit slower. Never left me stranded though.:dunno:

It's just something I do. The battery is 2 months old, but what can a quick trickle charge hurt?

Not a big deal :dunno:
