I use Douglas batteries on my truck. I think this good, durable battery. Gel battery is also good but i have no personal experience for this battery.

Shoot! Been putting of buying new batteries for the TV, but fate has caught up with me. Weathers been in the teen's for daily high, and hadn't run the truck for several days. Wouldn't start even with the "jumper." Got it going with my wife's car. Guess I have to break down and make the purchase.

I had to replace both batteries in my '07 last winter as the orignal couldn't handle the -15 /-20's temp we had. I jumped the truck and drove it to the dealer who installed 2 Motorcraft850's CCA instead of the factory installed 725 CCAs. However, driving the truck to the dealer and charging the batteries cooked the alternator so that had to be replaced a week later. Total cost to replace the batteries about $700.00 leason learned don't use the truck's charging system to charge dead batteries. Use a battery charger.

As for Optima batteries I installed a Optima Red Top in my vette several years ago and couldn't be more pleased with it. TheAC Delco batteriesI would only get a about a year out them, because the Vettewill sit for weeks on end without being ran.With the Optima I'm going on 3 years and itcan go at least 3 weeks with dieing out.The other reason Iwent Optima was because it was gel. Chevy great idea was to run the computer harness under the battery compartment and I didn't want to risk a battery leaking the wiring harness.

Thanks for all the replys. It's nice to know that other people have had similer problems so that it didn't end up being just me.
