Checking the specifications of your car, you can replace it with any battery that is the "approved sealed type". Make sure the cold crank amps match or is better than you have already. When you go to the battery shop (Sears, many car parts stores, etc), tell them your model of car and year, and they will be able to match it to what you have.

Also, make sure that you have one of your doors open when changing it to prevent being locked out.

Some other stuff of note:
When replacing the battery on 4.0/4.6 and later model Range Rovers, you should leave one of the doors open (preferably the drivers door) to prevent being locked out. This should prevent the locking system from automatically locking the vehicle and arming the alarm when the battery is being disconnected. Then, disconnect the battery negative lead first, and complete the replacement procedure normally. Afterwards, you need to put the key in the ignition to reset the alarm system and ignition transponder. You also need to key in the radio code to get it working again, and resynch the windows and sunroof. This procedure is described in the owners handbook. On the Mk III Range Rover, you even ave to reset the steering sensor after reconnecting the battery.
