Hi all,

My 1997 D90-LE seems to be holding less and less of a charge. I think t's time to replace it. I see batteries selling from $129 to $300+. Can someone recommend the best value replacement battery? Is there such a thing as OEM?

I buy the no name battery from Costco and have had a ton of luck/success. I generally get 5 years or more from the highest cold cranking amp battery they offer. I do the same for our suburban with the same luck. Might want to have the belt checked and the alt checked as well to make sure it's just the battery.

The land rover recommended replacement was a giant interstate battery.
