hi, i forget what comsumer reports said was the best bang for your buck.
maybe you can look it up.
i wish i still had the article for you.
you don't need to spend 300 on a battery.
everyone has a opinion.
that's what i belive.
just like tire's, speaker's, etc, if you know what i mean.

but there are bigger battery's- more cranking amp's, etc.
that is more important than the name on the battery.
also please look on the battery for the born on date.
they are suppose to be stamped with that by law, depending on the state.
i'd rather have a battery that was made last month, than 2 years ago on the shelf.

also there might be some info ,if you do a seach here.
many like the round cell type. but in my opinion they are over priced.
just don't buy a delco with that light in it. i heard so many bad things about that battery.
good luck,
gorilla

Yes opinions are like noses, everybody has one and they aren't always the same. I personally opt for agm style batteries which are truly sealed and offer high cca's and reserve capacity. I would also tell you to have your charging system checked to insure that it's still outputting the right amount of volts to the battery or it won't matter what you buy.

smart thinking:first:, point's given!:tu:

hi, my best friend used to work for exide. which is 1 of the up-graded battery's toyota use's.
go to excides web site, and see how many company battery they make.
the same goes for other company's.
that is how i learned about the born on date.
some auto parts store will put a sticker on the melted/stamped on date ,to cover it.
be wise & smart.
buy whatever you can afford.
what's the difference ,if you have a bad battery you need 1, so buy whatever you can afford like i said.
in 2 or 5 years when you need a new 1, if thing's are better than up-grade.
just make sure especially if you live where it's very cold, you get 1, that has the max.
cranking amp's your tundra will allow.
