Optima or Oddessy... I have dual optimas in all my trucks and love them.

Not sure what battery came with the Defenders originally, but if you have a lot of stuff hooked up, I would keep it simple and get the Odyssey 2150. It's right around the same price of dual Optimas without having to invest in a battery management system or isolator.

If not the Odyssey, which I've never used, I'd suggest Exide Spiral (also avail from NAPA) over the Optima. I've been running those for quite a few years. Higher duty rating and I've heard fewer complaints. They've been making batteries since the late 1800's, so I figure they know what they are doing.
