  1. I have a 1993 wrangler 4.0 and need a new battery but the your recommended batteries are too wide. They don’t fit into the base of the battery holder. I have only space for a battery that is 25cm wide. What can you recommend please?

    Best regards

    • Hello Soz,
      We have made a correction to our table. In the case of your car, a Yuasa YBX3113 battery or a similar one should fit.
      Best regards
