I just replaced the passenger side battery in my truck and noticed the cable going from that battery to the other is slightly pulling and corroding from the connector. I searched all over town for a terminal lug that would support the dual wires on the positive side of that battery and can't find anything to work. I'd like to replace the wires with welding wire and keep the gauges reasonable. Right now my starter wire is around a 0/0 ga wire and the battery to battery wire is a 2/0 ga. Did anyone change these and what did you use? How'd you guys work your dual battery wire setups? The factory positive wire from Ford is $210!!!!!! I can build better for less or at least the same price I'm sure if I can find that one terminal post setup.

Re: Dual battery post terminal and cable replacement
I like the stereo shop idea but I'm sure they're gold plated. Not big on the bling effect but the ability to get one for both batteries and have room for my winch cables is great too. I'll have to look at those online and at the stereo shops.
RockAuto.com has the Ford Motorcraft positive battery cable for $90.89. I have purchased one from them when my terminal on my starter wire broke. It's the whole cable from starter to both batteries.
Just an option...
Ive had to replace my battery cable due to corrosion at the temrinal, and went with the one piece OEM replacement from RockAuto for $89.00. The problem is that my old cable appears to be stuck between the motor mount shield and the engine. Can anyone give me any advice on how to get this cable from between the engine and the shield? For now my truck is stuck in the drive way
