Re: aftermarket battery selection

I got a Diehard International this winter; more cranking power than the OEM battery which was 4.5 years old and starting to weaken, but still worked.

Re: aftermarket battery selection

Odyssey PC1500RT. Positive terminal on same side as OEM.
Haven't had it long enough to make a judgment. Good so far at 6 months.
Had a red top Optima on another vehicle and it went dead in 2 months, so I'm biased against them.

I read about those but I heard they don't handle aux loads well because they are so much lighter than OEM therefore they don't have the backup power I might need .. sometimes I spend too much time in the Jeep.. I have the engine off and the radio on, also powering the amp and sub in the trunk so the new battery would need some extra power.

I'm looking for a universal group number so I can shop around.. haven't found one here or on wkjeeps...

Re: aftermarket battery selection

just make sure to check the manufacturer date on the battery and dont buy anything older than 4 months.

dont buy that mexican battery, buy a made in the usa battery. do a google search and look at all the bad reviews for yellow tops since they outsourced production to mexico.

Re: aftermarket battery selection

will do...I had one in my old dodge truck with 2000+ watts of amps, hardwired radar detector and a PA system with megaphone...had that battery for over 5 years with not one issue...but this was about 7 years ago when I bought it. So has their products quality lowered to the level of the country they are now made in? Mexico, really? Don't they know you gotta go to India, China or Korea...OR GTFO HAHAHA
