I was curious to know what are the best car batteries to get for our rigs. I've had my battery for about 3 years and I don't think I need to get a new one yet. I think I might have about 2 more years left on the battery life. The Pittsburgh weather does get cold sometimes. Any suggestions would be helpful.

My OEM one died over a year ago. The quickist/easiest option at the time was put my Yellow Top back into use. It was just on the shelf from a previous dual battery car. Worked great at first but noticed over the summer that it started dying very quickly –*like key on at a car show for 10mins and it won't start. Or not drive it for 3-4 days and it won't start.
Last night, I picked up an EverStart at WalMart for $118 (94R/H7 size – 790CCA). Made by Johnson Controls. Fits perfect, clean look (not white or yellow!)
Now I just need to bring the Yellow Top back to life and make sure there is no parasitic battery drain.
