Oem? Winch? Lights?

I'd pop any good battery that fits, interstate, optima, die hard, oasis... Pic a price and go for it.

I'm still an optima red top fan.

Sometimes dealers give good prices on Toyota TrueStart batteries (mfg. by Interstate, I believe), and I have had long life and good performance with those. They are ordinary wet cell batteries, so if you want it to work upside down, you'll have to get a different battery.

Iíve got a couple of them, and they are awesome, but spendy for sure! Spectacular battery though. I have a pro deal with batteries plus that Iíll happily share with the people here. It only saves about 10% though.
