How old is your battery? If it is the original..it is well due to be replaced. Old batteries will work better in warm temps...and not so in the cold. Same is true of new good batteries...but they usually won't let you down in the cold for the 1st years.
If that may seem to be a solution...i am not gonna get into this.....'Which Brand of Battery'.....I've seen heated discussions over things like this...believe it or not!!! You will get suggestions from many. Hopefully you know a mechanic/shop/dealer who you trust and can ask their advise. Many people that take their vehicle to a shop/dealer/garage/etc. for the simplest things curiously keep going to different ones? A good/honest mechanic will appreciate return costumers..is only natural. People who don't have a clue and go somewhere else every time something goes are cleverly screwing themselves as the years go by. Batteries can be load tested...often for free.
JBA s.s. headers&exhaust, K&N cold air intake, Bosch Iridium Plus 4 plugs, Royal Purple in motor, 5spd & diff.,Superchips programmer, axle girdle. Also have but yet to install KYB Gas-A-Just shocks and Belltech sway bars.
