I have good luck with the red top Optima batteries. Have them in my 01 and 04 250's. I get 3-4 years out of them before they ever have a slow crank then I change them. The 01 is my work truck and gets started up to 15+ times a day.
the 04 is my toy. It only moves on weekends usually and has two amps drawing on the batteries. Those are now pushing 4 years in the truck...

Those walmart batteries have a two year replacement guarantee and something after that.

I have the Ford batteries in mine . . . second year on them . . . they seem to be fine. Make sure it's not your starter acting up . . . I thought it was batteries and it ended up being my high torque starter that was bad for the second time in two years.

I went with the sears platinums about 3-4 years ago and they still check like brand new and crank the motor very rapidly..I don't think I will switch brands ever again!
