New optima!

Having 5 yrs on my battery, i was nervous of doing my somewhat weekly drive from st louis to chicago so thought i should just go for a new battery. checked out Autozone which had there Duralast for $149 and the Optima for $169, figured $20 more would be best for a high performance battery which i need for trails. since i run a onboard air system, cb and other goodies.
Hope i get a good life out of it, i will be happy with 5 yrs or so.

Re: New optima!

Nice choice, I run the same battery!
You should definitely get more than 5years out of this one, I have had mine for almost 8 and its as good as the day I bought it, awesome product.

Re: New optima!

I meant to get the red top a couple months ago but I was in such a bind that I had to get AC delco. Next time though, this will be my battery of choice. I've heard nothing but good things about them.

Re: New optima!

The Optima website does not list a battery for the WK, which is the exact model that works for us ?
