Whats the best battery brand out on the market?

Needing to get new batteries, owned the truck for almost 7 years now and this will be the 3rd set in this truck. Just wondering if there's a top of the line battery that would be better than the ones im purchasing at the Napa Auto Parts store. The current batteries in the truck are Napa Legend 75 1040 Amps, 880 Cold Cranking Amps.

I've had great luck with die hard batteries. They're usually good about their warranty too if you have any problems.

I have had good luck with my Interstates. If anyone doesn't know, don't waste your time and money replacing one at a time. Do it in pairs.
