West Marine which is all over, Interstate Batteries in Burlingame, Howard Jones batteries in Belmont. Those are the ones that come to mind.

There's also an Interstate in Benicia, might be closer to the truck. And Napa truck batteries are pretty highly rated, unfortunately there's not a lot of Napas in the bay area, but see if they have what you need, the prices are better than Interstate for a comparable battery.

I just saw the Richmond reference. It shouldn't be too hard to find something in the East Bay, there is a lot of trucking over here. The Interstate in Benecia makes sense.
