Batteries for 9180 Case 4x4

Hey guys,
Dead batteries and flat tires make me so angry.
Pulled my 9180 out of the shed today (after boosting it) and all three batteries froze over winter and split open. Looks like I need to get three new ones......
Where does everyone buy batteries from? I don't want to put in any knock off junk just to give problems later.
What kind of warranties are you guys getting with your batteries?
The ones I need are Type 31 with the bolt on top (not a post)

There is only two battery manufacturers I believe, Johnson controls and I forget the other so yeah life just sucks and last year they lowered quality to keep cost down

Good thing to do for things sitting in the shed for really long periods of time is to pull the radio fuses and what I do is take old chargers for things you don't use anymore ie. rechargeable lights or strange things like that are rated 12v and I think I even have one that was a cell phone charger. I put long speaker wire in them and attach a cigarette lighter hookup on them, make it long enough to get the plugin part out the door of the tractor. Makes it easy to start stuff up especially if you want to fire something up in the middle of winter to bring it in the shop or some strange short notice thing that pops up
