Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Ford Bronco II. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Bronco II may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford Bronco II battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Bronco II stranded. Your Ford Bronco II could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Ford Bronco II running newer, longer.
