Default Battery Recommendations

So the battery in my XJ died today. It was an Interstate Mega-Tron, and it survived almost 7 years under the hood of two different Jeeps. 7 years is pretty good, so I am tempted to just get another interstate, but I am wondering if there is anything better out there now? I will not be buying an optima, so dont even recommend it.

If you dont want an optima, excide orbitals are sweet.

If you looking for a normal batt the best one from walmart is a great one, as well as the duralast gold from vatozone.

the optimas are the same as the auto zone cell ones as far as ratings i think just alot cheaper. my buddy has 2 of them in his truck. truck works hard with lots of lights and a plow.
