Default Battery pricing questions

OK, I need 4 batteries. One reason is so that I will have 4 matched batteries. Right now I have 2 different pairs/brands. Each pair is its own match but that's the end of the matching.

2nd, a terminal came loose, I know, battery maintenance needs, and a terminal was fried.

Well, I have read nearly every recent post on here about battery pricing and I see y'all push the heck out of Trojans. No problem. I still looked around and was told Sams has good prices. I went and looked and they are $199 per battery. What I have seen online for Interstate was darn close to $300.

I have called local dealers and looked at their online sites and I can get Trojan T1275's for 145-159 $'s.

Now, what am I missing. I fully expected to be reamed for 4 12V batteries based on my reading around here but the Trojans appear to be right reasonable. Am I missing something?

And I suppose it is shipping.

Speaking of the power tron, that is what one buddy uses and they are even cheaper. What is the opinion there?

What are the Amp Hour ratings of the batteries you are considering? I would go for the largest AH rating.

I have heard that before. And I don't doubt it. And as long as I'm getting new batteries you would think I would put some serious consideration into it. Well, I have but I probably have left room for more.

From what I've seen I would have to get a tub to hold the batteries. I would also be inclined to get a new controller and many more parts other than the 2ga battery cables I am going to get.

However, my boys are 14 & 16 & are itching for speed and lift. I'm just not going to do that all right now. Well, maybe a few mph by flipping the speed switch or changing magnets but I am more inclined for torque at the moment. We have a few serious slopes and long hills at the deer club. The ruts are there too and too fast may throw the boys.

Anyway, it will be mainly stock for a while longer.

I am open for suggestions. We have 3k acres to hunt and the boys have already drained the batteries once.

Ya know, that wouldn't be bad but I want the quiet of electric. Also, I believe the gas stink gets on my hunting clothes. I suppose I could get some no scent spray......
