Battery Recommendations Requested (Jeep)
The Optima red top in my Jeep CJ-7 is toast - won't hold a charge after only 22 months. My prior red top only lasted two years as well, although the one before that lasted almost 5 years.
My local jeep shop won't sell Optima batteries any longer. Their experience is the same as mine - the early Optimas were great, recent Optimas are junk.
The obvious choices for offroad batteries appear to be Odessy and the new Sear Diehard Platinum (rebadged Odessy), also the Exide spiral battery.
What is everyone's preference? Brand? Model? Vendor with the best price (in SoCal)?
(PS - Yes, I did read every post regarding batteries before I posted this.)
