    What brand of Automotive Battery do you use?

    Do you also upgrade your alternators?

    Interstate Battery is in my 94 F250 with a high output alternator. My 06 f250 PSD still has the factory batteries. When its time, Interstates will go in that truck as well.

    I usually get Interstate Batteries. Good luck out of them. I have a high output alternator that I bought online from an alternator place. Almost a year and it is already going out. You have to rev it up to have the voltage up. I would recommend high output only if you are using off road lights, winch, ect. But for everyday use no.
