New Yellow Tops

My batteries in the 03 finally gave up, I didn't think that was too bad for the original batteries.

Anywhos, I put in the Yellow tops last night and it sure is nice to have the truck crank right up.

Now to get the ICP changed...GRRR

Hope they last...

I went through 3 in 18 months in a Jeep. Put in a cheap O'Reilly battery, and never had problem for 2 yrs until I sold the Jeep.

3 in 18months....shouldn't cost you more. Take them back to the store and get them replaced.

Optima replaced them. However I fail to see how that is evidence of anything but a poor product that is well marketed.
