Batteries- Will dual post batteries fit GMC LBZ

It does not look like there is too much room under there, especially on the passenger's side. It's finally time for new batteries and I was thinking that the extra posts would be nice to have and use. Will a Optima SC34U fit or the comparable Orbital?

Thanks.

I've not done it myself yet, but I've seen tons of posts on here of people running dual terminal batteries.

i would not recommend Optima batteries. My company works with the largest battery manufacturer in the world. They use to make them here in the states. The manufacturing is now done in Mexico and the product has really slipped.

I have the Sears Platinum AGM 34/78DT in my wife's Suburban and my daughter's Envoy. There appears to be enough room for this battery under the hood of my Sierra, so two of them will be going into it within the next year.
