I ordered one of these and it worked out well. I know it's not original and you all know, but how many people can tell this is a Wal Mart battery? I'm not going to tell. Here's a link. They come from Belgium so they take a while to get here. Be patient. They have a good selection of push in and glue on caps in 3 colors and different styles. Check your battery first to make sure they will work.

1/22 Update: there is a embossed "Mopar" side plate available.

The push in caps were designed to work with 3/4” holes. Also, these were made using an Interstate battery as a test dummy but any battery with the 3/4” hole these will snap right in.

Been running caps for four years now on a battery from Batteries Plus

Anyone know where I can get just the round 3m stickers ? I have had a few caps come loose probably from heat

Round stickers? You mean the two rectangular ones? Send me a PM , I can help you. I also have a few sets of the red stick on caps.

I am looking for a chart for the cap colors but I haven't laid my fingers on it yet. Here's a brief application.
Mopar Battery S27M red (1966-74) Caps kit is for Group 27 only (70A) Mopar Yellow kit (60A) and green kit (59A) are for group 24.
Your GTX should have a group 27 battery I would imagine because of the 440. (red cap kit)

Did you guys order and use the push in caps, or the glue on caps?

My battery had push in caps (3 caps to a cover) If your battery is a flat top, you will need the glue on caps. Here's a push on cap battery.

I have some Stick on Red caps still if anyone needs a set. I bought a few of each but I do not think I’ll be using them. They take 6-8 weeks to get from the overseas ebay supplier last I heard.

I ordered a set of red push-ons and they came in about a week. They look great and came with a group 24 sticker. I already had a group 27 sticker that I will use.
