    A little obsessive on the price but it sure serves its purpose as a heavy duty battery

    if you dont mind spending a little, go with an optima. They last forever and aren't affected by vibration or angle (sideways, upsidedown) like a standard battery

    I buy the advance batteries. Use em, abuse, and return em for a new one when they crap out.

    I bought my Optima 3 years ago(in the desert they say you rent batteries not buy them) and I've never had a problem...the truck sat for almost 2 months with the battery out. Didn't even hesitate on the first crank.

    My mom bought an interstate at the same time and has gone through 3 batteries since...and she doesn't even have a system.

    Well right after I posted this the ol delco started the yukon for the last time it was 20degout and it struggled but fired and I was riding down the interstate and my ses light came on so I stoped by the local autozone to pull the codes and it came up missfire.when I went to leave it wouldn't crank. :/ I replaced it with a duralast gold 1000ca 800cca 8yr warranty. $106. Now at cold idle and light throttlw cruise I have a missfire :/ I guess its fime for new plugs! Any suggestions? Was gona pick up some ac delco plugs while I was there but figured I'd get some suggestions before I buy them.
