Times batterys!!

Well my ride is bumping 7 yrs old and its time for some new batterys! I was looking at the optimas but the only thing i dont like is they will not fit under my factory battery covers! I thought about buying new motorcarfts for it but everyone tells me that the optimas are just a kick *** battery ! Was looking on some input on this!May even some pics?

Why use the factory battery covers? They're a pain anyway.
I use duarlast golds. 850CCA MINIMUM. And they are 3yr free warranty.

I've never been let down by an Interstate battery. The ones in my Dodge/Cummins lasted 10 years before needing replacement.
