You most likely have the maintenance free battery that comes in most new Fords. 2 years is a fairly typical life span for the batteries in the Ford series truck with the Navistar engine. I would also make sure they are not under warranty before you shell out the bucks on new batteries.

Battery life varies. When you replace one replace the other. 1 Battery will not start a diesel.

2 years is about all I ever get out of my batteries as well (96 7.3 PSD). About 4 or 5 years ago, I replaced the two Interstates (2 years old) with Everstart batteries from Wal-Mart. The Everstarts come with a 3 year free replacement, so every two years I go down and get me two free batteries. Shouldn't have to buy a new battery for as long as I own the truck.

I went ahead and purchased the Everstarts as well last week. I had the same thing in mind.

Thanks to all for posting! I just love this site.
