Price: $163.00
Pros: Long life, and works great on the trails. I have dual blue top batteries, with an isolator. I can winch using one battery while the engine is off.
Cons: They are expensive, so you want to be careful in mounting them so as to not damage them.
Recommended? Yes

Pros: marine dual post connections
Cons: none so far

Comments: Jell cell means no acid to spill and no water replacement. Dual posts are a great way to hook up the vehicle and the 2nd set for my winch.

Pros: Amazing battery, Gel battery so it will not spill, Marine grade
Cons: Larger than an average battery so it takes some effort to make it fit
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this battery when boaters world was going out of business. I needed it bad because my other battery an alternator would struggle if i was using my winch, or if i had my KC lights on and my stereo on at the same time. Ive only had it die once and it was because i left my electric fan running for over 5 hours on accident. Love this battery!

Pros: Deep Cycle, Aux Posts, Sealed, Vibe Resistant
Cons: NONE
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Optima batteries are in a class of their own, very reliable, very strong, and very important for those cold winters. This blue top is no exception to that and is of the highest quality.

Pros: Sealed, deep cycle
Cons: none (albeit a little pricey)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Opted for a deep cycle battery to act as a backup battery if my basement's backup sump pump battery ever fails. Even in the coldest of temps the battery never failed to work perfect. When this one wears out I'm replacing it with the same.

Pros: Universal application & Vibrasion resistance
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Managed to purchase at nearly half the retail price here in the UK (eBay)

Unsure whether the blue would handle the extra load for starting a diesel, needless to say it handled it with ease.

Price: $180.00
Pros: Holds Charge. Great cranking amps and CCA. Runs all electrical much better with deep cycle (rear wiper much faster at engine idle). Reliable. Weather Resistant in all conditions.
Cons: NONE
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought the Optima Blue Top from Costco. It was a great buy as it was on sale there. It weighs about the same as the stock Jeep battery, but the stock one always seemed to not handle the drain of electrical at engine idle (rear wiper would slow). The cold starts were hard even in the first winter with the stock, yet with the Optima, NO PROBLEMS! Rear wiper much faster now on hard-top and everything is great. I have no problems with cranking power with this deep cycle battery. I would highly recommend the Blue Top or Yellow Top to anyone. I picked the blue for the extra terminals on the top for future mods.

Price: $179.00
Pros: You just can't kill this thing
Cons: Heavy as hell
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After being submerged under water at the bottom of a lake for 3 weeks this thing still held enough charge to turn on the bilge pumps on my bro's boat once we got it out of the water, (my cousin sunk the boat). we took it to auto zone to get it tested and they replaced it no questions asked... I definitely recommend this battery to anyone that is putting alot of stress on their electronics...
