Group 65 or some people run a 34/78 dual terminal.

Spend the money on a good battery for sure, these trucks are real damn finicky with low voltage.

I believe the 68 series is the smallest you can get away with in the truck but I always try to put the largest/biggest that with fit. You can have a battery that's too small but never one that's too big.
