Battery Help

Are there any threads or anyone that can help me out with a new battery. I have a 3 year old battery in Florida. It is only a matter of when this thing will just give it up. I have been looking at the Dry cell batteries since I plan on running a winch and some aux lighting.

Any recommendations on the Odyssey or Optima? And is the extra money worth it?

Thanks

I am running dual odysseys and would highly recommend them, but you can get the same batt at sears for a better price. My personal take is to stay away from optima, I ran them for years and the quality was shit on my last 2 yellow tops.

There appears to be a group34M (marine) with two extra posts for the same price as the group 34. Will it rub?

I went sealed, because of this:


Now I run these:



Exide Orbitals...
Price is the range of Optima (I paid 150), and warranty is the range of Odyssey (40/108).
