    My 2012 F250 is starting to loose the OEM batteries.

    Any suggestions on replacements? Motorcraft?

    Like the filters, I use Motorcraft batteries. I used to like Sears batteries, but I can't buy them here in town.

    I have Duralast batteries in all my other vehicles. Including my boat. No issues with them so far. Otherwise I'd stick with Motorcraft.

    I had good luck with NAPA Legend batteries in my '94 IDI. Averaged four years or better on each set.

    Sears Die-Hard Platinum AGM's.

    They're Pricey.. but yul get what you paid for.

    That is the batteries I wanted to put into my truck, but they are not sold here in town. The closest Sears that handles them is an hour away.

    i used to go motorcraft until they changed their warranty (which i believe was 3 year free replacement and prorated up to 5?). it was either that or o'riley's super start brand has the exact same warranty. in any case...super starts are in there now.

    I have had issues with motorcraft batterys not having enough juice for cold weather starts, but I do live in Minnesota. They should be a pair of 1000 amp up here. Had some duralast 1000's in my 01 that lasted over 8 yrs but never see them around anymore. Interstate used to be good but haven't heard good results with them anymore.

    I prefer agms.
    I thought Motorcraft batteries were from a lesser quality maker?

    Quick Q while on the subject,

    Is there a difference in the two batteries on board ? (starting - storage)
