There's no 'best' battery. That being said, I went with an Optima Redtop when my stock battery died this past year.

I have the Red Top in my old New Yorker that spends most of its life in the ******. Best battery I've ever had. I'll be replacing my stock Jeep battery with one of those when it dies.

Has anybody installed one of these in our truck? Wondering which one folks have used. Their website doesn't show an option for the Cherokees.

Replaced mine last week. Wanted to stay OEM but didn't want white so I went with an AC Delco. Black. Direct replacement in terms of fit. $180 with my discount at Lordco

Those are very cool...but the price of admission needs to drop before I can justify getting one. Maybe on a boat when a single is applicable could I see spending the coin since Tow Boat USA is about $500 per hour...lol. Good stuff!

Picture of my new RedTop 34R.

I wish there was an automobile application for the BlueTop to stay with my under hood theme.

I replaced the key fob battery at the same time for good measure...

My Optima Red 34R lasted 3 years. Just put in the Optima Yellow 34-78 today. I often play the radio with the motor off when washing; hoping the Yellow's deep cycle capability will let the battery last longer.
