Well... it is something that can destroy an OME shock in 500 miles.

I remembered that on a Death Valley trip we had to jump-start an Excursion with both batteries down to single digits - not simply discharged, but completely destroyed. It took 40 miles from North Death Valley Road to Racetrack and street tire pressure...

Side question: Does AGM mean its a sealed battery?

I've heard one should not install a lead acid battery in the newer rovers (like LR3 or LR4). Simply because the wiring harness is directly underneath the battery. So if there is a spill, you kill your harness. Which is a bad time.

Here is a pretty good video that explains AGM batteries in detail. Nice small business in central OR. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/vide...sual-tour.html
