Not sure if its the best or not but I put in Odyssey 925L's into both my 850's. I would venture that that my temps are a tad colder than where you are.

I used an AGM battery from Batterymart, in my sportsman and an Oddessy in my motorcycle and Xterra. Both have been good. Probably the best thing for any battery, especially In the cold is a good battery maintainer when sitting.
Cold here in Minnesota.... Minus 15 F. Tonight

Odyssey 925L is an AGM battery. The L stands for the side the positive terminal is on.

The factory battery sits on its side. You get an extra inch from taking out the spacer and it will then sit about an inch higher than the stock one. I don't have any pictures of mine installed here so you will have to trust me that they will fit. I have put in two and there are likely another 25-30 guys on this forum who have done the same. Your rack still fits, you do not need a new tie down as it fits so snug.

All the Xp's are the same fro 09 on both 550 and 850. As for cost I paid 185 shipped to my door.

A DEKA may not be the best but it won't disappoint as well. I use them in everything.
