I'm not sure why I can't find any info on this with our cars getting to be 6+ years old, but this forum's search must not work very well.

My battery died (even though it's always on a tender) - called local dealers for a replacement and found nothing within 3 hours of me. So I tried Interstate for options and low and behold my Costco had the right battery - $120. However, even though Interstate's website says their MTP-90/T5 fits, it really doesn't - it's longer and taller and therefore the stock battery bracket is too small. Car fired right up and I was able to get it on my lift for yearly maintenance. Should I make a strap for it or get the stock battery shipped to me or get a $300+ AGM from DSE or the like? Not worried about cost or weight, just want the car to fire up on demand and for the battery to stay put.

Good to speak with you, twist-a-grip.

As we discussed, the two side mount brackets sold with all Gen V's except ACR's and ACR-E's will work fine with your new Interstate T5.

You should be able to order the brackets from Dodge for less that $50.
