Getting close to foreign up the truck after new motor and a sled of other things found my yellow top optima is toast after 6-7years. Looking for other options or just nut up and buy a new one. What batteries have you guys had good luck with and what kind of price.

I run a diehard Agm for last 5-6 years in my zj and every spring I put a charger on it and it's fully charged, they're expensive as hell but they are top and side post which is great for winch hook up, my brothers got a duralast gold that's prob 10 years old in his jeep

I've always ran optima. But danng the prices and availability are getting dumb.

Sam's Club has an AGM that a friend has been running in his normal vehicles. It's held up good, and it's cheaper then any other I've found. I think its Duracell. Truth of the matter, there is really only like three main battery manufacturers, and everyone stamps there names on them.

I always use regular Napa batteries, $80-100. Seem to always last me 7-10 years.
