I always change out battery's every 4 to 6 years. I can't stand the thought of a dead battery. It would pain me very much to have my wife stranded. She is worth a whole lot more than a battery.
Yeah, replacing the battery was on my list of "things to do," but as usual, it got pushed down to the bottom of the list. I'm happy the situation turned out to be "painless," as I was able to get the truck running with a jump, and we made it home.
