    I have a 2007 f150 and i think its about time for a new battery. Died on me today and there is no way it should have. had the door open for a little while while working on some stuff and then i go to start it to move it and theres nothing. battery was dead.

    What batteries do you guys recommend? What are some good ones you can trust

    I personally like Deka's. I've had them in about everything and they've always held up well. Heard some pretty amazing stories about them too. It's a good battery built in the U.S.A.

    Me and my Dad own a battery store. If you have a plow on this truck and are trying to keep the truck for a while, put an orbital or optima battery in there. If it is just a personal truck with no plow, all the major brands are good. I would stay away from Sam's Club, and Wal-Mart UNLESS you like playing the warranty game. What i mean by that is Wal-mart and Sam's Club doesn't give a **** if your battery is bad or not, they will replace it anyways. U could rip your battery out every year and take it in for warranty and they probably wouldn't notice.

    My best advice is go with an american made battery (Deka, Exide, Interstate) They are all good. And support the little guy. go to a battery specialist in your area. They may cost a little more. but your supporting the community plus you will get better customer service. Plus whats an extra $10.00. Over 5 years that's 16 cents a month!
