Stock battery life

I sure it will be a mistake to ask, but what is the average life of stock batteries? I am going on 4 years and feel like I am on borrowed time.

2011 GMC SLE CC, bone stock for now.

Still have one stock Delco in my 04. I think the passenger battery boiled over and the previous owner just replaced that one and left the factory Delco in on the main battery.
