Who's still rocking their original battery?

Thought I was going to have to finally replace the battery but the negative terminal was heavily corroded.
Cleaned everything up replaced the negative terminal and I think it's going to be fine but time will tell.
I posted about this being the original battery before and got the BS feedback but no lie it is still original.

LOL ! you're on "Borrowed" time for sure. I've seen reports of original Mopar bateries going 6-7 years but not 10+!


Have you been removing the caps and adding distilled water if needed? I'd guess not with the condition of the post clamp terminals!

Nope I've done nothing but clean the post when needed.
My wife keeps telling me to get a new battery but it's lasted so long now it's a challenge and I've accepted.

All you'll have to do at this point to do it in is leave the headlights or interior lights on overnight.

I am! I thought I was the only one. 01 3.2 with 73000. Car was a daily driver until 2010, now it's stored winters but I always put a trickle charger on it every other week when it's stored. As doubled72 said, its a challenge now to see how long it will last.
