Battery opinions

I have been using Optima Red Top batteries since around 2000. I put one in then and it lasted 7 years. I put one in 2007 and it lasted 7 years. I put one in 2014 and after just 3 years and a few months, it needs replacing.

I Need Advice.

I used to love these batteries but apparently the quality has gone way down. I need to find a good battery to fit in my 97 XJ and any advice would be appreciated. I would like to stick with the gel type and price is no issue as I want a quality battery not a cheap one.

Appreciate any suggestions.
