Opinions are like a.. holes- well anyways, I put a yellow top in my ram in 06 when the oe battery failed- still there, now 172,000 on truck. Got a pair of FREE blue top marine, Optima sponsored the Ozaukee Co. Demolition derby 2 years ago, one died, the other lives under my hydraulic tilt bed trailer to operate the winch and hydro pump when it is not hooked up to my truck with the power plug on the back. Just put a pair of red tops in my brothers 94 cummins. I have a 6 volt optima in my 31 ford, just replaced under the 3 year warranty. Have a Gold from Advance in the 2000 G Voyager, Replaced the Original Battery, plenty of cranking power, but way short on reserve capacity, If I turn the dome lights off, and open the doors with the radio on, it will be dead within 2 hours. I can leave the radio on in my 1500 all day with the yellow top, 6-8 hours, and it'll still start. Have run it dead a few times charging Dewalt 18 volt batteries on the lighter outlet charger, but usually it takes at least 8 to drain it. Guess it is just luck of the draw.
