I bought a 900 CCA or thereabouts Interstate Battery from Rocky Mountain Cummins for about $140 last year. With 10% off Military Discount.

No issues thus far.

Napa. Or Check if you want to save some money, get a 1000 CCA Interstate.... its big, ugly and heavy. Also, Tractor supply has some good batteries, but 1000 CCA seems to be the best....the faster you spin it over, the quicker it lites off. That means less wear and tear on your starter.

If you don't wanna pay too much, try Autozone's Group 31 950CCA for $99 i believe. I have one and it's doing fine. Make sure to read the replacement warranty.

Napa brand 1475 cca commercial battery. It's longer, but bolts right in, and is only $120.
