Exclamation Need any help possible FAST!!!

I'm about to purchase the batteries for my cart and I'm looking at the trojan T-860, T-875, T-890 there is only about $200 difference between the T-860 and the T-890. Is it worth it and will it make that big of a difference. This cart will be used to drive around the property, the lake, and to the hunting spots up and down the gravel road. I really, really appreciate any advice. Thank you.

I don't know what size batteries that you have in your cart now nor do I fully understand the question. Some of those batteries will evidently be larger in size and may not fit your battery bucket if that helps.

I currently have 6 dead Crowne CR-165 8v batts and I'm going to buy some trojans from a local dealer. I can get the T-860, T-875, or the T-890. From the T-860 to the T-890 with batts, install, corrosision grease, and load test is only a $200 difference. Also after speaking with trojan the difference is almost a 50% greater run time at 56A so I'm wondering if for my application is it worth the extra $200. The T-890 size is the same as the T-875 which is what the manufacture puts in the carts, but is a few pounds heavier per battery.

Go with T-875 or 890.

890's should last longer, in both range and age. IMHO, If you can afford it, I'd go with the larger capacity batteries!

Well they just called back and it will take 2 weeks to get the T-890 set in, but they have the T-875 in stock for $120 less. Should I wait or go for the T-875?

T-875 is all my dealer sells here and there are 12,000 registered golf carts. T-875 will do you just fine, I run them myself too.

875s are great! 890s are better but I think you'll be more than satisfied with the 875s

Here is another piece to the puzzle. I have a light kit on the cart and plan on putting 2 12v off road lights on the cart. I will also be lifting the cart and putting bigger wheels and tires on it...Will it benefit me to have the bigger batt pack?

Well I appreciate all the fast responses and great advice. I just finished some bargaining and can't pass up the deal we worked on the T-890 set and I think it will be worth the 2 week wait so I can get my lift and wheels ordered. Thanks again everyone you all are AWESOME as usual!
