Hi There,


New to the forum. I use my '86 Cherokee as my rain vehicle. I ride a motorcycle as my main transportation.

I neglected to start the truck for about 3 months (because it didn't rain) and I think I may have killed my battery.

If I jump it and run it for about 30 minutes, it will start again right away, but if I leave it for a couple of days, it won't start.

Looking for recommendations including a brand and model of battery as a replacement.



Any help here is much appreciated,


Ian Cool

I run Optima batteries! You should unhook the + cable when you're not driving it and the battery will be fine!

Thanks for Reply.

I'm gonna do the unhook thing. I totally got out of the habit of starting my truck because we haven't had any rain for several months.
