    I had an issue this morning with my original battery in my 2007 not wanting to turn over this morning. Noticed it was turning over slower than normal and am curous as to what would be a good replacement.

    It's still the original battery and I have the heavy duty one that comes with the towing package and have the power outlet in the bed.

    Also, I feel like I've read somewhere that the O2 sensor or some other sensor may need to be reset after replacng that battery? May be crazy but if anyone could shed any light on this it would be appreciated!

    you can either get 24F or a 27 and optional optima red top..optima i would recommend only if youre running a sound system,winch or off road often,other than that,its a waste of money. 24 is the standard size which is most common. 27 is the longer,a little more power (towing battery). The o2 sensor does not have to be reset

    Like mentioned get the same battery spec and group size, with the best full replacement warranty available, combined with the pro rate warranty. I lot of good batteries out there made by the same people with different packages or names on them.

    I replaced my battery this past fall.... Not because it was 'bad' but because it was 5 years old and the 'winter' was approaching. It was time to change it before it left me sit. I shopped around and ended up buying a battery from my local dealer - they were having a sale on them. I can't remember the details... but it compared in price to all the others of the same size and had a really long warranty.

    Plus, I figured.....the factory battery lasted 5 years without any problems, you can't go wrong with another factory variety.

    There are only a handful of battery manufactures so chances are they just have a different label

    I buy Walmart batteries. Some last a long time, some don't... same as the others. I'm out on remote jobsites every day, no cell service most of the time, can't worry about dead batteries, so I take along my AntiGravity jump start pack. Also have a BatteryMole analyzer plugged in, keeps track of the battery, charging system. I'll know before hand when to pick up a new battery.
