Duracell AGM's from Sam's club in mine.

Whatever AGM batteries you buy, just get them from someplace handy to get them warranted if you need to.

Who is/was the OEM battery manufacturer for 4th gen trucks?

Pushing 5 years on mine. Thinking my next set will come from a test drive!

Recently installed X2 Power batteries (Made by Northstar Battery) from Batteries Plus after one of my stock batteries finally gave up in my 2014. Got them to give the online discount in person, they have a 60 month warranty and most of the places I travel to there is a batteries plus, just in case I have an issue.

I had previous experience with this battery brand battery in a gas application(2 Toyota tacomas) and it is going on 7 years now with no issues. Hopefully I get that type of reliability out of the 2 I put in my Ram.
