Re: Battery Cables

I just bought a positive cable from O'Reilly's. They had to look it up in the book. Wire is way bigger than stock, it was around 75 bucks. I could not have built it for that.

Nice, so it was decent quality, what gage? I was going to have a place in town throw together a 2/0 cable ...

Re: Battery Cables

I would probably just run 1/0 or maybe 2/0 welding cable. Battery cables at the parts stores are WAY over priced.

Re: Battery Cables

Most stuff usually is lol. I just called there and the lady that stumbled through trying to find what I needed said they had the black cable but not the red lol.
I have a place that hooks it up with 2/0 cables for a good price, I was just hoping someone knew the length so I didn't have to go home and pull the cable ahead of time lol.

Re: Battery Cables

It is 2/0 cable. Great quality. Perfect fit.

PM Aljay, I bet he could look up the part number for you. Like I said, it wasn't in the computer, so you have to get a real parts guy that knows how to use the books. They actually had it in stock (special ordered and never picked up). He said he could have had it the next day if he had had to order it.

Re: Battery Cables

So did you find out the lengths or did you just get a new cable from the parts store??
Reason I am asking is because I am gonna have some made and what a pain to get them off measure and put them back on so I would be able to drive it the next day.
