yeah its been 2 years last truck factory lasted over 4 IDK i think they just have a mind of their own...I though there had been somthing up cause they were not charging right or were charging too much but the alternator test was fine

maybe its those fancy LMM batteries cause mine barely crank over the motor on cold mornings(30 is cold here)

The only thing keeping me from getting new batteries is the price of 2 red tops
