Price: $110.00
Pros: extremely good cold starting behaviour
Cons: only a few sizes
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The Red Top is now the second Optima battery. The first one is eight years old and still in service in the daily used commuter car. I needed a battery capable to deliver enough current to heat the glow plugs and crank the starter. To start the engine you only need to try once. The Red Top delivers an unbelievable amount of power even in the cold.
The capacity is a little bit small to power accessories like the aux engine and cab heater which consumes a lot of amps, but I can add a second battery anytime, if feel the need to do.
The dual posts allow a very clear connection of all accessories.
Top brand!

Pros: 1000 CCA
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have two of these batteries, one came to me for free with a trade on some non-jeep related stuff. I'll be very happy once I get the two of them wired up. Have to build a tray first!

On the one that is hooked up, I haven't had a problem yet.

Pros: great battery, high CCA and CA. starts the Jeep and wont leak
Cons: $$$

Comments: Spiral core technology with leak proof case sounds good to me. I was in the market for a new battery and decided to do it right rather that cheaply.

Pros: Withstands potholes and vibrations from bad roads.
Cons: If it dies, needs high amp recharge or it will take forever (some think it is bad at that point).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I live in pothole, ID. My old battery started leaking in less than 3 years cause of all the pot holes and bad roads. I'm told that this is a higher cold crank amps than factory. I have not had any problems so far, and it seems to crank right over.

Price: $140.00
Pros: 800 cold cranking amps
Cons: Doesn't fit exactly in the stock tray but it still fits fine.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I haven't had it long but I will update when I get more use out of it.

Bought it at Sam's Club for $140 which is $20 cheaper than online, so if you shop at Sam's Club, buy it there.

Comments: Great battery! I especially like the twin terminals as I can hook up my starter (lower terminals), and my winch (upper terminals). I think it or a yellow top are perfect Jeep batteries, especially if you have a winch.

Comments: Great battery for cold weather starting. Also good if you accidentally leave your dome light on all night long then come outside in the morning to go to work and notice it and are like ****. Get in and vehicle starts right up!
