Its black, square, it fit, and it starts the Jeep. It is about 1/8" wider at the top so the factory hold down bracket needed to be cocked slightly to tighten down. The caps do come off so you can check the water level which was perfect in all six cells. The battery is only 75% charged off the shelf.

I've been asked to review a brand new battery. It works, ask me again in about 7 or 8 years. For the people who checked "heavy" under cons, it's a lead acid battery, if it's heavier it means it has more lead in it therefore it is probably a better battery and will last longer.

          Comments about AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 34/78, 800 CCA:

          The battery seems to be of high quality. Since replacement there have been a couple of below-zero mornings where the car cranked right up.

          But the fit as a replacement is not ideal. The Town and Country has a quilted plastic heat shield that fits snugly around the original battery. I had to stretch and trim this to fit around the extra side terminals of the new product. The extra terminals are not needed at all for the T&C. This is not a functional problem, but creates an annoying appearance.

                    • Q:

                      This battery (part no. 78/34-4) used to be 'Gold', not 'Silver'. That means the free replacement period is reduced from 3 to 2 years. Does that mean you've been seeing problems with early failures? I bought one a couple of years ago when it was Gold. I need a new battery for a different vehicle, and am dissapointed and concerned that this same battery is now labeled 'Silver' - like it's not holding up as was expected. :(

                    • Q:

                      On 11/8/2012 I asked the following question:

                      "What does "maintenance free" mean?"

                      Steve from AAP said:

                      ""Maintenance Free" batteries are sealed and do not require topping up with distilled water because the electrolyte level does not change because they do not produce much gas. Advantage of maintenance free battery eliminates the need to add water and minimizes corrosion in the battery terminal posts."

                      OK. So if these batteries are "sealed and do not require topping up," then why did Vincent from AAP say on 1/12/2012 "to check the water level during the hot months of summer..."?

                      Please don't ask me to call in. I'd like to see a resolution to this confusion posted in the Questions on your website. Thanks.

                        A:

                        Sorry for any confusion caused. Most of the maintenance free batteries are sealed and do not require topping. However there are few maintenance free batteries with removable vent caps as well. This AutoCraft Gold Battery, Group Size 34/78, 800 CCA - Part No. 34/78-4 is one such. Most customers will never need to add water to their maintenance-free batteries. In fact, the vast majority of batteries don't even allow you to check the fluid levels anymore. But if your maintenance-free battery does have removable caps, there is certainly no harm in removing them and adding water if the fluid happens to be low.

                    • Q:

                      Does this have top posts? One picture doesn't have top post, two pictures show top posts.

                      My 1998 GMC Siera doesn't have top posts.
