I work part time at an auto parts store. We sell our brand and Optimas.
Just for info, the Optimas sell so poorly, we had em marked down to 50% off for a month to try and get them to move. Prominent display rack with 50% mark down on it.

Didn't sell a one.

We don't even display em anymore, rack in the back holds reds, blues, and yellows, all gathering dust.

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.

I too wanted a Diehard Platinum 4 but the budget wasn't there.

I went with an O'Reillys Super Start Extreme AGM 34/78 battery.

Super Start 34/78EXTAGM - Automotive AGM Battery | O'Reilly Auto Parts

It may have a slightly shorter free replacement (36 month) warranty and 84 month proration, but it is made by East Penn and Johnson Controls.

I put it in and the Jeep started up faster than it ever did. With radio/amps/subs going, no light diminishing like my previous battery did.

So far, I feel pretty comfortable with it, but I can report back in a while if people are interested.


-97 TJ with a few mods. PM with questions.
