Move the fuel pump from the positive post to the large stud in the PDC. This way your battery terminal are not choked with four tons of accessory wires. 

My right battery died 2 weeks ago.   Went to Walmart to see their price; $120  plus core.  Went to the in town battery shop; wholesale $87.75.  Went to my friends battery shop;  $85.   I got two new $

Yeah, that price doesn’t include the core.  Nor does the Costco price.   
 

Manufacturing is down across the board.   Tried buying tools lately?   Almost everything I’ve tried finding is ‘out of stock’.  Building material prices are off the charts.  Manufacturing has been throttled into near non-existence over the last year, and what’s left is hugely expensive and/or from China.   Laws of supply and demand.   Demand is currently high, supplies are low, so prices are high.   


Tough for me to sit on the sidelines waiting for stock to go back up and prices to come down when I need the batteries now.    Any other opinions on Costco’s Interstate batteries?

They must have jacked up the price :think: or I got lucky

There was also a core charge when you bring old batteries back you get some money back 

I'm seeing some prices in the discount stores higher than elsewhere.

I got Walmart batteries not long ago and they were around 80 bucks a piece, you sure you're looking at the right group 27 is what I believe I got. Unless they went up in price recently like everything else.

2 wal mart batteries here as well for about 100 bucks each.. Had them for a couple years and they work just fine. Group 27.

 

Everythig else is higher it seems these days until we get back to some semblance of normal.

I don't think they want normal, but I do know by shopping around you can find  few stores really taking advantage of people with this political pandemic.
