I usually stick with Interstate batteries. The Army had a contract with Deka for supplying their batteries awhile back and they were junk. They might have come along ways since then.

Interstate MegaTron Plus in my 07, 06 and 04 6.0s.

They all killed the factory batteries much faster than our 7.3s did.
