Need a new battery. Need advice on what to get?

Alright everyone so I need a new battery. Mine has about kicked the bucket after 6 great years. Now, I haven't had to replace the battery in my truck yet and I am unsure what brands are good or what type of battery I should get. I do need one with quite a bit of juice ample enough to run all 4 fog lights(100watt a piece), 1000watt amp powering 2 10" subs, cb radio, and the truck. The battery I have now has lasted a long time but has seemed quite weak since adding all 4 fogs, and I potentially would like to get new headlights at some point, possibly hids.

So what brand is great for a lot of umf ?

I have always been a fan of Optima batteries.

Optimas are really good - I like Interstate batteries too.

Sounds like you need a high output alternator with all those lights / amps.

It sounds like you need an Optima Blue Top for all those electronics. Also have you installed an inline capacitor for your audio system?
