Sure you don't mean 72 amp hr, 660 CCA (cold cranking amps)?

Interesting - the specs show that a 72 Ah, 750 CCA battery is standard in all the 2010's. 2009's have a 58 Ah, 540 CCA battery standard. Some of the 2009 payload/towing packages are supposed to include a 72 Ah battery. I'll have to see what mine is.

The 72 Ah battery is actually a 650 CCA battery. The 750 CCA battery is 78 Ah. Both batteries are the same group size, 65. I couldn't believe they shipped my truck with a 540 CCA battery (group 59, 58 Ah). But it only needs to meet Ford cold cranking requirements, key off loads and underhood temperatures. I now have the 650 CCA battery in my truck.

If your truck came with a battery blanket, make sure you still use it.
