Basically when I bought the truck it came with Motocraft batteries....One is on its way out for sure. It's getting harder to start everytime...Plus the check guage as well as the battery light come on before I turn it over ????????
What are some good batteries?
Interstate ?
Optima ? I've been told they're the best ? But they're pricy.

motorcraft are good batteries i've heard alot of guys on here running them 4or 5 years but i have plain ole walmart batts that ever give me a problem. I wouldn't get an optima just because i don't need that good of a batt and they expensive, just stick with motorcraft you'll be fine

Cheak alternator replace batterys with optimas and forget about them for a long tome. My old bronco had a red top I killed 4 alternators in 3 years but that battery would take a charge every time.

Another thing....It might just be because its colder out. But it now takes longer to turn over?????? Could that be a combo of batteries/alternator....How do i know what alternater I have
