Default Battery
I have been getting some slow cranking after the track sits for 2+ days. I don't drive the truck every day. sometimes the truck can sit for 6 days. Truck is a 13, that was purchased in Feb of 13. Original battery. Currently don't have any additional electronics installed like lights and such.
What batteries is everyone upgradeing to?

I have a 13 and my battery lasted 7 months! I replaced mine with a Optima yellow top and its been great, even left the power on over night by accident and it still cranked.

I changed my 2013 raptor's battery about a year ago just to stay ahead of the game. After some research, I went with an Odyssey and couldn't be happier. I expect to get 8+ years out of her. Time will tell

I bought the Odyssey as well, Part Number: ODY65-PC1750T. At the time 4wheelparts had a promo price for $230. Direct swap in. I have been very happy with it and would recommend.

my terminal was toast, i picked up a super start AGM with a 5 year warranty at the local auto parts store for 190$

swapped out the positive clamp as well since all the corrosion was taking over. still need to hit up some electric grease when i get a chance.

Another vote here for the Odyssey. They cost a bit more but I feel like they are worth it.
