I don't quite understand your question. GC batteries come in two varieties: GC1 and GC2. The GC2s have slightly more AH capacity but only about 5-10% more The dimensions are the same and the weight of the GC2 is slightly more due to more lead.

You can get much bigger (and taller) 6V batteries like L16s which are used in floor polishers which have about double the AHs and double the weight. But I suspect that simple GC1 or GC2s give you the most AHs for the buck.

Finally very few 12V 8Ds are true deep cycle batteries like golf carts. And they are back breakers.
