    What kind of battery's are you guys running in extreme cold winters? I needed a new battery so after doing some homework I bought a Duralast Gold from Autozone, I guess they have a few more plates in them and are made by Johnson Controls...anyone here using one?

    I have a Die Hard Platinum in my truck and a Die hard gold north in my wife's Yukon. Never had a problem last winter when it was -45 for a week.

    I have dual duralast golds in my truck. But they are new last week. I haven't been through a winter with them yet.

    I have a Die hard gold. My last truck had duralast and was rated in consumer reports a few yrs ago as a top 5....Great battery..no worries with that choice.
