Battery questions

Was looking for any help. Was wanting to know if 700 cca is enough. I have a 2006 6.0. I had two 850 cca batteries that went bad and walmart only had 700 in. Was wondering if that would be ok. I live in Louisiana and we only have a couple cold cold months so I'm hoping 700 cca is fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated

If they will accept them back, I'd go for a better battery. When my old ones died, I went with a pair of Interstate Mega-tron Plus 850 CCA batteries. I've been pleased so far. It may only get cold a few months in LA, but when it's cold, you need the juice. Good luck whatever you decide.
