Next week it's heading to Ford to get them replaced under warranty and I will mention that to them also but you would think they would check the output last Sept. when I had the second set put in.:doh

On my 08 they didnt last 2 years, I didnt trust the Motorcraft set so I replaced them both with Intersate. I swear there the best brand out there. Thats nuts though that your on the third set. Something is unhappy under there. I hope they get it figured out for ya...

My Job 1 batteries lasted 38k miles, almost 3 years. Does anyone know why Ford deosn't put maintenance free batteries in these trucks? I can't believe that I had to add water to my batteries. Same issue with the new 6.7. I bought the DieHard batteries for my truck and they should last 5 years.
