Ill make a suggestion has long has you dont get pissed at me? Happy Hands learn to leave them at home.:winkIf I may hijack this thread for a little....Often when I am in my groove and hitting the snow hard, if I raise my plow and shift between forward and reverse at the same time, the truck will die and the battery will be completely flat. This usually only happens in the most inconvenient places, and results in me calling in help or running for my jeep and jumpers. I'm in a 98 k1500 with a sno-way, the truck has done 150k miles, and my boss is a huge tight-ass. So my question is, will a new battery help this (I may be able to talk him into one) or is it all the alternator's fault (I have little hope of squeezing one of those out of him)?
Towman its a dieing task explaining itauto zone batteries are made by johnson controls, have sold some at work over the past year as a test bed for them and so far have not had any come back yet, like Fred i hate explaining battery adjustments for noone understands how it works
You too? 50k on the clock and I'm replacing the stock batt. Unbelievable! But I guess I'm still counting my blessings that that's all this truck's needed so far... Course, it's not a power-get-stroked either... :winkStill sort of pissed that I'm only getting a little over 2 years out of my OEM's.
