It is an AGM battery and doesn't leak acid in the engine compartment. Works fine as a starting-only battery.
Not a good choice if you have a winch. Also not a good choice if you have a big stereo or multiple off-road lights that you use with the engine off. It is not a deep-cycle battery and will not survive as well as a deep-cycle YellowTop or BlueTop battery in a typical recreational 4x4 application.
Bottom Line:
If you winch, have a big stereo, or multiple off-road lights, you are better off with a BlueTop or YellowTop deep-cycle starting battery.
