I'm still on the original battery for my 2013 Tundra Crewmax. It's a 27R (F) Toyota/Exide battery and has been great despite having to clean up any corrosion occasionally. I'm trying not to break the bank with a new battery purchase but I'm also interested in getting an AGM (truck does sit more over the summer months since since I don't go to work daily) and I'm tired of dealing with leakage.

So, I'm looking at a current Costco/Interstate option right now. I can get what's basically an Interstate MTX-24F through Costco for $159.99. It has a 3 year full replacement warranty.

CCA is 710
RC is 120min
Amp Hours @ 20hr is 70

My stock Exide is 710CCA/165RC.

We do tow a boat but the trailer has surge brakes, not electric.

Should I have any reservations with this battery choice?

Thanks!

I'm considering getting the same battery for my 2012 Crewmax.

I ended up buying one and it's been great. And without having to commute to work right now, the truck sits more and the AGM handles that much better than a wet battery. They were hard to find in my area, though, I had to wait for new shipment...so make sure you clarify you are looking for the AGM Group 24 battery. They have a ton of the non-AGM versions and they can get confused.
