Wow, I can't believe that liner shrunk that much. I would replace it.

It only needs to be registered if you are changing the battery type (lead acid to AGM or changing the amp hours). That is of course if it was correctly registered in the first place.

25-35K will get you an 08 and maybe an 09. I don't think you can find a 10 worth having for that much. I wouldn't get a 07, simply because they don't have the LCI enhancements. I have an 8 with...
