two years for me. I think it was an AC Delco.
I read someone on the board still had thier original battery in their 1996! but that is rare, for sure.

Stock battery in my 2000, with m8000 winch.

This one should make it through this winter at least, then going to an Optima Red/Yellow Top.

You guys should check out Odyssey batteries.

All I can say is that I have switched from Optimas to these.

I got mine from Discount Tire, but most autoparts stores have them.

I just took mine out of my 99 last week. It was still working fine but I needed a little more juice for winching.

Mine is the original Delco Green-eye 01 and shows no sign of being weak.

Knock on wood I still have the original in my 2000. I had an original battery in a 76 VW Rabbit last 11 years, that probably doesnt happen too often!

Costco has a better than stock battery for 40 bones... it's not an Optima, but unless you have a winch or shit load of lights, it hard to beat the price.
