What brand of batteries

Is time for new batteries I sometimes have some hard starting issues and voltage will drop to 9 volts when cranking. Got them tested one failed and one barley passed, the date on them is 12/08. What brands do y'all recommend and what kind of warranty do they have.

I don't remember the amps/volts of mine, (Google it). But I have two duralast batteries I bought at Walmart that have a pretty good warranty where if anything happens no questions asked I get a replacement. The truck starts right up, I don't even have to wait for the WTS light to go out in case I needed to.

I thought Duralast was an autozne and Everstart was Walmart.

I got a good deal from the local,Ford Dealer on Motorcraft Batteries. look on Owner.ford.com (register if you haven't already) and look for coupons and specials at local dealers. They were cheaper than anyone but Walmart.
I had Duralast prior to these and they crapped out around 4 years. The originals lasted better and 7 years.

Make sure your cables and connectors are in good shape and not corroded up inside the insulation on the cables.

Ill second the wal mart cheap'os. Mine are going strong. And a good thing about them is just about every town in the USA has got a store now so if one fails while Im on the road...no problem!

Maybe it depends on your region as to what they stock. But here in Jersey (NY still has no Wal-Mart) it was mostly all duralasts they had on the shelf. I don't remember the price but it was about $100 give or take. I can't exactly say how long they last as I just put fresh ones in this year and the pair I had before were still good and only died because I had a power drain issue but I had them for a few years without an issue.

I picked up a pair of interstate batteries back in February from a local truck shop. I think I paid about $125 plus tax for each of them.

I only got 3 years out of my duralast 8 year batteries. Now on my second set. Isn't there only 3 or 4 manufactures of batteries?
