My delco battery I bought 4.5 years ago is toast. I'm ready to get me an Optima. I have a red one in the Suburban and it works great.....

This is going in my '01. Should I get yellow or red? I am going to do a little research in a sec but I wanted to see everyones choice.

I'm gonna try to find a place that sells them where they are relatively new, not been sitting on the shelf for two years. I'm also going to trickle charge it up before I stick it in the truck. Thanks dewds

I would say red because you dont run a ton of electronics or a winch. I got a 800CCA redtop and it works great. No problem with my off road lights or other accessories. JMO

Go with whichever one you feel good about overpaying for. :lol:

Seriously though, there are numerous batteries out there that will work more than sufficiently for much less money.

That's a gel battery correct? What did it run you price wise?

Yes its gell cell. It was 171.99 at advanced auto parts. I did not have to charge it. It was fully charged when I hooked it up.

My local Oreillys wants $179.99 for the 800CCA red top.

I dont have a problem spending that, but I guess I could look around to see what else is out there. With the same CCA...

Plus I always have $20 off coupons for advanced so it was just over $150.


You must have one around you.
