Interstate Batteries period . Or look for at least 750 CCA "cold cranking amps". Dura-last are junk. Also check out Powerstrokehelp.com

around here the die hard golds are cheaper than interstate, and the red top optima's are about the same as the interstate price wise. i need two also and will be going with red top's.

My truck is a bit older than yours, but it did the exact same thing last year. Started fine in the morning, got out of work, cranked a few times, and then clicked, and then eventually nothing!! Changed out the batteries to Optima reds and have been going strong ever sense!!!!

I would prefer way more than 750cca's Bill. That what mine came with, but it's hardly sufficient.

not a bad idea to check your ficm, those batteries were probably not good for it.
