I second the Duralast gold. While that'* not what I have, it'* what I would have gotten if I could have.

good ol wal-mart everstart does the job pretty well for me, it is their best one the one warranted at 3 years. 2 years so far without issue.

Everstart and Duralast both get great reviews from Consumer Reports. I chose Wally World'* Everstart because it'* closer and always there for something. I have 2 Everstart Maxx'* in my dually Dodge and 2 in my pontoon boat, no problems.
