I have a pair of Interstate batteries. I have run them for years. In my opinion cheaper aint always better.

Not sure whether DEKA makes a battery for your truck, but I've always had real good luck with them in other applications.

According to my owners guide: You can charge one battery. You cannot replace one battery. Replace both is reccomended.
