Default Battery group size

I’ve done some searching but still can’t quite find the answer that I’m looking for. Looking for a new battery and I know that group 24 and group 24F will fit my 95D D21 four-cylinder. What other battery groups will fit in the stock battery tray and not hit the hood when I close it? Group 34 ?
I have swapped out the hood to a mailbox if that would make any difference in clearance.
I’m looking for the largest battery I can put in there without draining my wallet.

Why?


That same Gp24 was used, in the 70s & 80s in Chevy PUs for 350s. Your needs are significantly less.


They also make a Gp24 Deep Cycle and I think that they are cheaper.

Oh, like how I installed a small car battery (think KIA) in my riding mower? As long as you run it long enuf to fully recharge the battery, else it's a waste...

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.
