Personally, I think Interstate batteries are the best replacement. Never had an issue with them.


    Bassetman, that's ridiculous it should have lasted longer! Lol. I've had good luck with duralast gold (AutoZone). I usually get 3 years out of a set, diesel trucks are hard on batteries! Actually 35 months, they have a 3 year free replacement!!

    I recently bought a hated and damned $50 Walmart battery to replace an 18 year old Die Hard Silver Series in my seldom, if ever driven '87 IROC-Z.

    I currently have those hated and damned Walmart Maxx (maximum cussin') batteries in all of the four other vehicles. I've gotten at least 2-3 years beyond their five year warranty periods from them. I will say that when they die, they seem die without warning. The Interstate battery that was in the GMC prior, died the same way.

    Typically, three of the vehicles sit while we drive the other two. As such, I make sure that the idle batteries aren't abused (deep cycled). If the car is going to sit for more than a week or two, it gets connected to one of these:

    FWIW, I've not had this brand of float charger die like the Deltran Battery Tenders.

    PAULO,
    I, too have had good luck with the walmart Maxx. 5 year batts are good for 5 years. My Gator 622 has a lawn and garden job with a tag that says 5/10.
    I am sure other brands are great as well. The Florida heat is tough on batts, no matter who makes them. The cold is no advantage (don't miss cold one bit).

    Both Everstart Maxx and Interstate are made by Johnson controls.

    That was an amazing truck. If the salty winters didn't eat everything underneath, I'd still be driving that truck despite the 270K miles when I traded it in on a 2018 Silverado. Have no idea who made that AC Delco battery, but I was thoroughly impressed. Come to think of it the Delco name may have vanished by 2003.
