Jump Starter

I recently bought a 1997 ford f250 and want to get a jumper pack to keep in it in case my battery dies or to help out someone else. Could anyone recommend a specific one or aleast how many amps it should have to jump my truck as there are many different ones available. Thanks Nate

Lol yea biggest possible, I personally like the ones that you don't need an adaptor to charge it. Just grab an extension cord and plug it in
