I'm just looking for a new chassis battery for my 2006 E450 super duty

Figured it's time for a new one seeing how I have no idea how old this one is, and I think it's getting weak

Put in the largest that will fit in your battery box.

Sure, Cosco, Sams Club, etc.

If you use hookups most all of the time you can use any 12v battery like a grp 24 wet cell. If you dry camp a lot where amp hours are more important, using solar or a genny to recharge, then I would use a 12v deep cycle AGM in a grp 31 or two grp 27's , whatever you can fit in the box.

It is for the engine battery he said!

IMO go to an auto store and get the listed battery for your vehicle. If they have different ones for how long they will last, I always pick one in middle for expected time, but suit yourself on that.

Have the existing battery load tested.

Add a trik-l-start.

The original chassis battery in my first motor home lasted 11 years.
The original chassis battery in my second motor home lasted half that.
Go figure.

I always replace my vehicle batteries when it starts to give me trouble.....after the first non-influenced jump-start.
