Best WK battery?

What are you guys using to replace your old batteries? I know a few had issues with the batteries we have after 3-4 years, i am running my jeep with the stocker (2005) and i am a little concern, i drive every two weeks to St louis MO from chicago (580 miles both ways) and i pass threw miles of farm land which are very dark and lonely at night.
I have been looking into ACdelco and Interstate and Red tops, any advice?

Optima Red Top FTMFW bro!

I threw one in my mazda 6 after about 6 trips to the dealership for dead batteries, and after 3 years now I have yet to have another battery related issue!

Yeah, I've read Optima is the shit. I think they are pretty cheap at Costco.

I replaced mine under warranty. I like the stock battery. Either way its going to cost near 150.00.

Re: Best WK battery?

I think I paid $180 for mine, but damn was it worth it. Might I mention the dimming of lights when my system was slamming went away with the new battery as well

Re: Best WK battery?

For the abuse i put my jeep under, i should just invest in a Optima since it's known to handle vibrations, the only problem is the mixed reviews, some swear by it some curse it to hell.. i guess i can always return it if i don't like it.

Re: Best WK battery?

When I had my Jeep, I was using Diehard gold. I was pushing a lot of power from the car to and the battery never failed on me. I think I got it for $110 with a 36 month warranty from sears.

Re: Best WK battery?

I'm not sure but I think I might need to pick me up a new battery for the WK soon.
