I don' t know if it is the best or not. But, I have a die hard platinum in my truck. It's been in for 3+ years now with no issues. 4 year replacement and 100 month pro rated warranty.

From what I have read, they are pretty much the same as odyssey batteries. They are AGM, like the optimas. A few years back we had a stretch that was -40 everynight. The truck started everyday and has never given me problems while plowing.

I have the diehard platinums also. Great battery for plowing. Much better the the optima battery. Pricey but worth it imo.

Diehard platinum is a totally different battery than a diehard that is not the platinum series. I used to love optima which is made by interstate , but feel they have gone downhill the past few years

The kids all call them neverstarts. I haven"t had much luck with the napa battery's lately. I have one now that I bought in the fall for the sander that's junk. I have to bring it back I guess. Of course I can"t find the receipt

I always make sure to replace with DT's (dual terminal). That way you have lots of room for hooking up all the accesories and boosting as well.

Always had good luck with Napa's in the past and have replaced 3 this year - but I think one is crapping out already. Trucks just don't get run enough this year for some reason........

Cat has some really good batteries for trucks, might cost a little more but I have had great luck with them.
