New Battery

I need a new battery, and wanted to know what amount of CCA I need for stock set up on a NAS D90. I usually buy NAPA batteries, but it seems there are many choices. I don't plan to have anything in my rig that pulls power other than a set of hella lights, radio, and I don't usually drive when its super cold out.

Don't buy batteries by CCA, buy them by weight. Weight=lead=higher discharge=longer life.
Therefore, buy East Penn/Deka or Odyssey. Both of those are made in the USA. They cost, but are worth the extra coin.
The same size Odyssey is nearly 10 pounds heavier than the NAPA battery.

I know there probably better out there, but have never had an issue finding a NAPA store when needed and never had any warranty questions. Also....if your in a bind you just might get it delivered.

I'd second the recommendation on the Deka batteries. They have served me well.
