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)

I wonder if you could put AGM batteries in a tractor, one of our service trucks used to have a power draw issue, it would be dead every single morning (replaced batteries every couple months). Sent it to mechanic after mechanic and no one had answers. We just ended up putting some AGM batteries in and now the thing can sit for a weekend and still start better than it ever has. The price difference wasn't even that substantial, interstate had the agm battery option for like $50 more.

Bunch of my friends are using AGM in their power toys now too, instead of having to replace the old style battery every 1-2 years they just park it in the shed and it fires right up next season. No battery tender or anything needed anymore.

The AGM batteries won't rot the steel around them either, as they don't puke out corrosive gasses during charges like standard wet cell. And typically they can survive being under 25% charge in some cases up to 300 times. I really like the AGM construction, I wish I could use it in everything.
