Off-Road AGM Group 34 Battery Jeep Wrangler JK/JL

Review XS Power D3400 Off-Road Battery

A brutal battery that won't let you down on the trail and that fits your Wrangler JK/JL compartment.

 

The D3400 is not common on the Jeep scene but it's a pretty popular battery in the dirt track racing universe for over 10 years. When a Jeeper is about to venture out on the worst trails, he can trust that battery: it's a tough one. And its dimensions fit the Wrangler JK/JL standard hold down clamps.

Almost unknown in the Jeep World but this battery is probably one of the best off-road batteries ever made in the history (top 5).

*Dual Purpose = Combines both starting (high cranking power) and deep cycling (use accessories while the engine is off). It also maintains the charge of the battery for a longer period of time. It's 2 batteries in 1.

 

  • A very vibration resistant battery used by racing cars on dirt tracks and powerboats as well. Fits in the in any Wrangler stock battery location. Extraordinary low internal resistance in order to preserve capacity in deep cycle mode, in cold weather, or long-term storage. The ABS case is heavy, thick, and reinforced to resist extreme heat in race conditions ( dirt track). Ingenious cells that prevent internal impacts and shocks (electrolytes are tightly "glued" in compacted fiberglass plates). Won't leak and won't require any maintenance at all. Weighs only 46 lbs (without the posts and the clamps). Can be used as an auxiliary battery too (isolated in the second position of a dual battery tray).
