    Who has the best prices in town? I want to get an Optima Red top or possibly yellow top. Any recommendations? Red vs. Yellow. Do I really need a yellow top? or is a red top just fine? I don't have alot of offroad lights, huge stereo, or winch (yet). I am also moving to Colorado, so I am also concerned with cold cranking amps, and if it will hold up to the cold. Thanks

    Costco also had the red tops for 99 bucks. If you don't have a membership we could meet up and get it. The gel batteries have a much higher CCA then the normal plates b/c of lower internal resistance.

    It Damon (or rather his father) can get us the same thing at the same price, I would much rather fund the small guy (especially if related to friends on this site) than big retail...

    Kick Arse. I needed a top and side post and was wondering if you could get either for that price. I am planning on going and getting one as soon as I get my rear shock relocation kit from 55 Willy. I need the lower mounts welded in and I am going to set up an appointment when the show up. (hopefully very soon) That way I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

    Do we have to get the battery threw you or can we just tell them Damon sent us? Thanks
