Default Largest Battery Fit In A 3.0

Hey folks, I'm out and about in a few hours, and i'm looking to do the "BIG 3" today, So I thought well this is a good time to buy a new battery; which really I don't need, but since my off road/reverse lights and my newly installed inverter is now in, I thought it would be a great idea. So right now i have a auto zone yell battery, it has 750 cold cranking amps, I don't know if it's a group whatever.

what size can I put in that 3.0 engine compartment and still close the hood? What group, is the 4.0 battery compartment the same? thanks

p.s Buggman cable and battery compartment inspired me and oh does it look nice in his, So yes I will be asking him for assistance as the area looks quite confusing

They will remember me always

I would recommend measuring it up, then size the batteries up at the auto parts store, or if they allow you, do some test fits to be 100% sure

The stock battery is a group 58/59, A group 65 is the biggest and may fit but I've never tried it. Also you could look at a group 24, group 34, and not sure about the others. These are just the larger ones I remember off the top of my head. I work at Advance Auto and the group 65 in the three year warranty at our place runs around 120 now.
