Replacement Batteries ???

08 crew cab 4x4 . batteries are still decent but going and i do not want to get stranded they are about 3 years old which is about right for here in Las Vegas , Nevada. Trying to decide what to replace the Motorcrafts with. Really dont care for Optimas. Have had Duralast before in other vehicles but not to impressed. But I am open to all opinions on some replacement batteries with good warranty as well . yes i have searched for hours so here i post .

I would replace them with Motorcraft. Lots of dealers around if you have a problem. Plus, alot of your top battery brands are all made by Johnson Controls, including Sears, Optima and Motorcraft.

Subscribed for info. Never had a problem before with Autozone batteries, but I've only purchased their deep cycle marine batteries.

I replaced my OEM batteries with Sears DieHard Platinum. I don't expect an issue but there are Sears everywhere if I do have an issue.

Yes I always replace my batteries with the yellow tops from autozone. They have a good warranty and seem to last. There are autozones all over the country so it is pretty easy to find a place to replace your batteries if you need to.

I like the Interstate batteries or the most expensive ones from Wlamart in a pinch and plan to keep the vehicle.

x2 for the Sears Diehard platinums. Thats what I put in my truck recently, and so far so good. I honestly haven't heard a bad thing about them. A little on the $$$ side, but a good investment IMHO
