10 years on any battery is astonishing. I sometimes have to replace at 5, and consider it a victory when I get 7 or 8.

Which reminds me, I need 6 new tires for the rig. Last time (around 8 years ago) they were $300 each. There's plenty plenty of tread left, but I'm told after 8 years the rubber loses elasticity and you can experience blowouts. I'll probably push it, but I have to admit it worries me...
