    Need a new battery at 18 months old?

    Anyone else need a new battery at 18 months? Just had mine replaced. I have a few auxiliary lights and a CB/PA linked to the battery with relays and fuses. Nothing else. Seems a little premature. Thanks everyone!

    Mine lasted just over 2 years and I hear that's not out of the norm in hotter climates.

    My battery had to be replaced at about 2 years also on 2010 Rubicon. The battery I have now is going on 5 years old. It's a Sears Diehard.

    The battery went out, in a pickup I had, after about 8 months, once. The dealer replaced it, under warranty.

    Mine went out in 2 years so I upgraded to a higher cranking one.

    Funny - I stopped at a Batteries+ store to do the same but the hipster soul-patch wearing dumbass working there and I got into an argument over why he couldn't sell me a higher cranking amp battery as they wouldn't warranty it and it would "blow out my electronics"
    I was so irritated that I just stopped and bought a cheap ass hunky battery from Walmart until I can figure out which good one I want to buy....

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
