Diehard Platinum Batteries

Well...it appears that my OEM batteries are going south....I guess not bad for 7+ year old batteries!

Anyway, any thoughts on the Diehard Patinum Batteries? They have 930 CCA and a 4 year full 100 month prorated warranty. They are pricey though at $190 each.

AWESOME! Thank you for the coupons. I've been pleased with the OEM batteries....so I'll probably go this route.

I too keep mine on a battery tender. Usually the truck gets very little action between November and March (when camping season isn't in session) and so she is hooked up to the battery minder. I was hoping to get longer than 7 years....but with a long trip coming up, the motor not cranking as quickly when cold and the battery indicators showing yellow/red, I think it's prudent to be safe than sorry.

Check out Costco's house brand, Kirkland. 80 bucks same warranty or dain close. probably made by same company. lots of guys(on the forum) have used them with good reveiws.
Why pay more if you really dont have to?

My truck has been eating batteries every 2 years so I went with the platinums and they have been great so far. My truck has never started so good. Now I just hope they last.
