    I have used Optima, but I prefer Odyssey batteries.

    Just installed two Odyssey (925L) in my ride and love em. Had just one for awhile and it did fine, no problems at all . Added a second for peace of mind. Paid about 180$ each.

    I've boughten 4 optima batteries (red tops) over the last 3 years.... of those 4 only 1 still works. and every battery failed just a month or two outside of it's warranty. there's a reason why they only have a 2 year warranty on them

    In my opinion, they're a complete rip off. you pay twice as much for one, and they fail in under 2 years..... they guy at the auto parts store I bought them from agrees with me, and he's stopped selling them because of the poor quality.

    -2007 700xp 1650hours /traded/
    -2012 ranger Diesel TURBO'D / 600 hours/traded/
    -2011 ranger XP / 900 hours
    -2011 ranger XP / 1600 hours
    -2012 ranger HD / 1500 hours

    Running them till the wheels fall off, repairing them, and doing it again.

    I've had similar experience.......had one fail on me (in the boat, not the Ranger) after only 30 months.......and have heard numerous others say similar things. I won't waste my money on Optimas anymore.

    optima

    I would suggest you contact the manufacturer as to which one you would need. I have the blue top optima battery for my camper. I use it to run my gas furnace fan & lights. I also use it for my sprayer. I bought it in 2006 and it still works fine. I use it very often during hunting season but not on a daily basis as some here may be doing. For "my" application use I'm very satisfied. Just my two cents.

    I'm not disputing the record above but my red top Optima is still kicking in my 05 CRD Liberty. Feb12' will be 7 years. In the winter I usually help it with the engine block heater and use the battery tender a couple of times

    Red top

    Guys.....red top optima batteries have a 3 yr warranty....I just bought one today and in BIG letters on it...3yr warranty...
    So if they are failing which they might....I have 2 in my dodge cummins and they work flawless ...maybe you should take them back...just a thought.
