    Interstates are excellent battries but very expensive. I just replaced both of mine and went with the AC Delco as this is what came with my truck. Lasted five years so I could not complain and justify paying over twice as much for the interstates. just my .02

    Would you like suggesttions on flooded, gel, or AGM batteries? (Please state whichever one you intend to use rather than 'all'.) I ask because the fact that a manufacturer does one type well doesn't mean it does more than one type, well -- so knowing which you intend to use becomes important.

    I may get flamed a little for this but I have been buying the Walmart Everstart Maxx for my vehicles. 9 year prorated and 5 year free replacement and only $75. My land rover got the one with 1000CCA in norcal (but in socal its only 884, yep they make a norcal battery and a socal battery). Thats the only one I have replaced but that one is always sitting. the one I have on it now sat almost 2 years and had plenty of juice still for cranking. the other vehicles had those put in when the other brands died in them (not a single problem so far, but couldnt tell you off the top of my head how old they are). obviously these arent deep cycle etc for winching and special needs type so dont know how they work for that type of abuse.
