jnwolfe125 I've had this in my jeep for about a year and have yet to kill it. I've run lights and radio with the jeep off for over 6 hours and it still cranks right up. I've left the lights on during an 8 hour work day... still cranks right up. I recently spooled up 100' of winch line and towards the end I realized that my jeep wasn't on.... even then... it cranked right up! This battery is a beast!

mmtphoto I own a bunch of drivers and most rarely get regular use so I make it a point to go with AGM since they are easy to refresh after deep discharge unlike a conventional battery. I usually get twice the time from this type of battery (7 to 10 years) as a regular conventional battery would last. I also have subs in all my vehicles so the dependability of these helps.

muddflow I can't find the receipt and remember the price being around ~150.00 - ~180.00 before or after sales tax.

AGM batteries have less frequent national average replacement statistics than open/wet cells.

No battery acid spills destroying clothing. Battery has fairly good ratings. Can be charge with old style battery chargers, seems to charge more efficiently when used with newer PWM type battery chargers.

4x4nation I have never had a problem with my Yellow-Top. Left stereo/lights on for upwards of an hour at time on a few trips and it never seems to care. If your shopping for a new battery and you have additional accessories to run on your Jeep look into an Optima.

bbusch My last yellow top Optima lasted from January 2005 until this past August 2012. I have had Optima batteries last me over ten years before.

RDavi I installed the Optima Red Top battery in my jeep way back in 1998. In 2012 it started to show it's age (specially after I drained the lights more then once with the lights. I had to finally get a new battery. I opted for the Yellow Top because of the Warn 9000i winch, On board air, CB, and Radio I have in the Jeep. I just finished the swap out and it could not have been easier. I really like the front accessory terminals.
