2002 F350V10 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I ahve read many battery posts on the forum and the costco $75 batteries are recommended alot as the best bang for the buck. 3 year free replacement, high cca , overall a very good choice.

Dual Odyssey 65-pc1750t-h in my truck.
Better tan any other battery on market! NOT CHEAP!!!!!
An AGM battery will stand up to off-road and even the worst road in Minnesota, which I live on. Odyssey is better than any other. I have 14 miles to nearest tar and the road is never maintained! Why would anyone buy a cheap battery for $50K+ truck.

IMHO

All this battery talk reminded me of a funny thing. I went to crank my F150 one day and it needed a jump. I realized the factory battery had finally started to fail. After 17 years. Incredible!

The original Motorcraft batts in my 99 lasted until 2007, then they died when we were gone over Christmas, and it was snowy cold, AND I think the rear side dome light was left on,,, drained em dead!

i bought the sears die hard platinum which is supposed to be a re-branded Odyssey (same batt but cheaper).
important to note: a low battery can cause corrosion (white powdery residue) to form in the FICM if left uncharged

Interesting... About the sears battery. I will check into that. However, Sears also sells the Odyssey... at twice the price you can find it anywhere. They also won't price match. I used to buy from Sears for tools, appliance, etc. but, with the poor quality they have recently (last 5 years) achieved and astronomical prices on crummy tools that no longer have a true lifetime replacement I'll go elsewhere. I think they are trying to pay for their bankruptcy!

They used to be the best but are just over priced junk sellers now.

Again, This is just my humble opinion.

I'm pretty sure the Diehard Platinum are NOT rebranded Odyssey, but rather Odyssey competitors. I have a deep cycle Diehard Platinum in my TJ rock crawler, and it's been an fantastic battery. Stands up to physical abuse, runs the winch, and keeps on ticking, and it has a good warranty too. When my factory batteries eventually run out, I will very likely bite the bullet and go with Diehard Platinum replacements from Sears.
