If money is no object then the Odyssey brand is top notch. I’ve had very good luck with Optima yellow tops, avoid the optima red tops.
I also use the Costco Kirkland brand AGM in one of my jeeps. Good Battery, doesn’t fit jeeps perfect so you have to get creative with the cables. Price is good and comes with Costco’s good warranty.

+1 on the Odyssey. I got 8 years out of my first Odyssey, and I wasn't gentle with it. It also handles the load from a winch far better than a factory battery.
I followed a rainbow out to a garage and found a leprichaun. The rainbow ended in a potted cactus on his porch, but there was no gold :(

Ditto on the Odyssey. I’ve been running one in my 2012 since earlier this year and wouldn’t go back. Highest power rating for the size and fits right in.
