    Tried them as well, but pullin them one at a time and putting them back in didn't show anything. Only when I pulled both #59 and #67 did the current drop.

    Well looks like the next battery made it to 54000 so about 16000 miles. Turning off the stereo when ever I get out of the car and running a trickle charger through the winter. Issues seem to be the stereo and a Ford design issue.
    Note for winter driving batteries discharge below 18 Deg F so combine that with an alternator that equalizes between 2300 and 2600 rpm you are never charging it properly. Stressing the battery even more. And in Alaska with the ice and the dark those kind of speeds are dangerous.
