I had a 49-DL fail on me after about 2 1/2 years. They gave me 60 bucks for it (prorated warranty) and with the cost of replacement now at $110, I decided to look around and see if I could find a better deal. I ended up finding a great battery at a regional chain (Farm and Fleet). It was $80, part #4972, stock venting location, fits the same as the OEM battery, and is 900 CCA / 1080 CA with a 72 month warranty on it. Of course this doesn't help anyone outside of the upper midwest, but thought I'd throw it out there...
