Are they worth it? The jeep came with a blue top, and nowits toast. The advertisements make it sound like they will last through the millennium,but . . . . Any thoughts?

Used to be worth it, but now they are hit and miss from what I hear.  You would be fine with a red-top though.

I took the plunge on an optima and I've got to say I found nothing special about it, and it went bad on me in three years. 

to be honest i've been more pleased with the performance of the everstart Maxx batteries that Walmart sells.  I understand the big advantage is any mounting position, vibration resistance, etc, but I'll never run the baja and if I'm upside down I'm not thinking the battery is going to be my biggest concern.

I can buy 2 and 1/2 maxx's for the same money, so, that's the way i roll!

Good luck!

A few years ago now Optima got bought out and that is when the quality went down hill badly.   I bought mine about 8 years ago and it's still going strong knock on wood.  That's why I say they are hit and miss now.
