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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

So far so good, it came with alot of different adapters for various applications, found the right 1 and saved the rest for when & if I ever relocate the battery.

Well I like it cause it gives me the power I need an a little more has yet to fail me so far. Also it's really tough I'm glad I don't have to worry if it bounced around a little. The battery gauge don't work in my truck however so I don't know the volts it holds or puts out.

Strong Battery. I like the fast that its a Gel battery, meaning no acid / water to slosh around. Dual posts work great. Run the top posts for your existing wires. The side post for accessories! Get an Optima.
