Im beginning to think the battery in my 2004 GC is the original factory unit. Its got a Chrysler sticker on it, but according to the service history the jeep fell out of the dealer servicing network after the warrenty expired. Franchise Dealers charge so much for a battery that no one with any sense buys from them.
I spoke to an Internet battery dealer who said they had heard of some cars going 10 years on the original battery's. So I figure Im on borrowed time with this one.
Still, 9 years so far, thats good going !! :)

My favored car battery replacement unit is a Bosch S5 (5 year warrenty) So if Bosch will say 5, they must think it will go on longer than that.
But as I say, no proof, but it might just be.

Well I got a fault with my gearbox last week on a very cold morning start. Jeep went into limp mode i think. Someone posted up a tech bulliten saying a weak battery is known to cause this fault on a cold day, so Ive bought a new battery now !
