that is Precisely why I chose Walmart, they are Every Where.My problem with battery warranties is that a store that I purchased them at or who will honor their warranty is never near me when they fail.
I am also a believer that the higher CCA batteries will last longer than the lower ones.

My first set or the original Motorcraft batteries lasted close to 10 years. The second set of batteries that I purchased were again Motorcraft. They were bad and dead after 6 years. I now have a set of Autozone Durlast Golds that are going on 11 years.Believe it or not I have had great luck with Motorcraft batteries. The stock ones sucked but I replaced mine with new ones and no problems.
my EZ Go golf car has the OEM Trojan batteries in it, they finally died a few months ago, at something like 17 years old....Interstate was founded in the '50's. They are not a manufacturer, but a marketer of Clarion, Exide and other manufacturers batteries.
A $100 bill is not the old $20Mine are about 6 years old, so I expect to be buying 2 by spring. I'm in a cold climate, so this truck stays plugged in.. It starts fine. batteries are testing at 12.64... testiong them individually. anything lower, I'll replace them.
By the way, everything is expensive these days.. I do the grocery shopping, nothing is going down.
My CTEK charger will fix a sulfated battery. I got it off Amazon for $107 . This is the one I have CTEK MUS 4.3 TEST&CHARGE. On amazon type MUS 4.3 and it will come upMy 6-year-old batteries died at the beginning of this winter. My "smart" charger told me they had an internal short and it wouldn't even try to charge them. My "stupid" charger would charge of course, but the batteries wouldn't pass a load test. I had heard about people "cooking" their batteries with high amperage to bring them back to life. I figured I didn't have anything to lose, so I gave it a shot. Sure enough, the process worked. I could visibly see the sulfation coming off the lead plates in the cells. After hitting them with the high amps, they took a charge and passed the load test. I've been running them all winter since then. I'm sure I just pushed back their inevitable death, but I'm happy to have squeezed a little more life out of them. I've since brought back to life a battery that died about 10 years ago and I'm running it in my skid steer. It didn't work for the 13-year-old battery, though!
I have a niece who with her husband will spend $20 ten times rather than $200 once for a product that will outlive all the others.I’m sure the OP has already bought and installed batteries, I’m just not sure there will be much of a cost saving going cheap and undersized. No doubt they’re expensive but if you take the total cost and divide that by their expected service ( 5, 6, 7, or even 8 years the pain isn’t quite as bad. Everything on our diesel trucks is expensive, and hopefully their owners are gaining other benefits (towing, longevity, resale, etc.)
