I'm all about Interstate. Sure, they're not the cheapest, but I have seen them stand up to some pretty wild conditions.

Why are you buying them every year? Sounds like there's something wrong with your Jeep... Should get 3-5 in regular DD duty.

My local interstate battery has a lifetime warranty. If it goes bad as long as you have the vehicle they will replace it. Idk if they're like that everywhere else though
