Battery Problems

I have a redneck engineering getting high model with the dry cell battery mounted under the tranny. I can't keep the batteries from going bad. The shaking from the battery being mounted under the tranny on a hard tail keeps ruining them. I've tried Odyssey and Deka batteries with foam or silicone to keep the vibration down. I've gone through about 5 batteries! I can't relocate the battery to under the seat because the redneck frame has a bar going straight under it for support. Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?

Wow I'd never heard of them before. Interesting but I'd never pay $1000 for battery!

The description on those sounds just like the Odyssey Battery but they are a little more expensive. Are they suppose to hold up to vibration better? I think they problem I'm having is due to the battery being shaken rather than having a bad battery.
