It's really simple Just like any other car or truck. I replaced my original battery. you disconnect the terminals then the cover over the battery comes off.There should be a little nut around the bottom somewhere which holds the battery cover on take the bolt out then pull the cover off then there ya go pull the old battery out put new one in.
