Default My 2007 FJ MT/6 Still Has It's Original Battery

I bought my titanium 2007 FJ MT/6 in September 2006, has been my daily driver for the past 11 years and has 133,000 miles. Never once has it not turned over and cranked right up. I tell this to people (not FJ owners) and they literally do not believe me. As in, tell me they don't believe it!

Any other 2007 owners with the original battery?

Also, is there any reason why I should change an 11 year old battery that by all appearances is working as designed?

PS...I was an original forum member who signed up back in 2006 but apparently no longer has an account here? Wonderful forum! Glad to be back.

The OEM batteries seem to work well in moderate climates. I got my 4Runner in Nov 2002 and had the OEM battery for a number of years, and only decided to upgrade for a winch, but it was working well some 6+ odd years later in California.

I think people in desert/very hot or very cold climates tend to change much sooner.

What was your original username? We had some issues with spam from certain regions at points and had to block some IP and email regions.
