Hey everyone. First time post, but I'm sure it won't be the last. I received an old Silverado 1500 power wheel from a coworker. It's been sitting outside, so battery is junk. I am looking to do a budget rebuild just to get it working, so I'm wondering if there are any aftermarket 12v batteries that will directly replace the gray top battery without cutting out sections to make it fit. I looked at Gruber options vs measurements of original battery, but nothing seems like it will fit in the tight space.

I am also thinking, since I don't have the charger, of clipping the power wheels connector and just using one of the quick connect clips between the battery and vehicle, so I can also use my battery tender for my motorcycle. I know it's a longer charge, but that's not an issue.

Also, any advice around this specific vehicle are helpful, but the biggest is the battery and getting it moving. Thanks!
