So with inverters, winches, lights and such, what kind of batteries do you prefer?

I have used Ultima red tops in the past with other trucks but since my 06 is new, I have not needed to change batteries yet.

Any suggestions or preferences?

Well, I would say an Optima yellow top, but they don't make one in the orrect size that will fit the new X (reversed terminals).

I would look at an Exide Orbital.

Exide batteries still dont fit right without a little modification.
I do think that the Optima red top can come in a reverse terminal battery but the yellow doesnt.

Exide orbital select is basically equivilant to Optima Red top. (Really Good)
Exide XDC is basically equivilant to Optima Yellow top. (Top of the Line)

Here is a post of the modification I did to have the Exide battery fit.
