jeep battery cables



Hopefully, you've found this page because you are looking for aftermarket battery cables for Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee,  CJ or other Jeep vehicles.

The cable sets below fits many late 90's Cherokees, Grand Cherokees.  I think this kit will probably work on just about any Jeep with the 4.0 inline 6 cylinder and the battery mounted in the right front corner of the engine compartment with the fuse box on the right inner fender well. 

 If you're just looking for one of those Jeep ground cables with the "Y" in it click here.

jeep battery cable endThe cables are built from 1/0 ("one-aught") cable for the starter and engine block ground. The heavier wire helps reduce voltage drop so you get more power to the starter. After we crimp on cast copper terminals with a 12 ton hydraulic crimper, we seal the connection with heavy wall adhesive lined heat shrink.  The picture to the left is an actual stock cable from a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.0L I-6. Compare the thickness of the wires showing below the heat shrink. Note the heavy duty adhesive lined heat shrink which helps prevent battery acid and acid fumes from corroding the cables.  Even the battery bolt and nut are top shelf.  The nut and bolt have an anti-corrosion plating.  All cables are also shipped with battery washers.
Starter_cableAll the positive cables come with a starter lug cover.  That's because the oil filter on the 6 cylinder engine is directly above the starter.  The lug cover should help prevent an accidental short circuit when changing the oil.  Of course you must install it properly and use caution when changing the oil filter.  Covers for the battery terminal ends are available for an extra $5 each.
jeep battery cablesThe fuse block wire is 4 gauge wire with a singe hole heavy duty 90 end.  The wire is a heavier gauge than the factory wire for reduced voltage drop. If you have the factory 2-hole connector you may need to fabricate a jumper.  Some guys just cut the old connector off and use it for a jumper.
jeep positive battery cableThe positive cable is a 40 inch long 1/0 cable with a 5/16 starter lug and a 22 inch #4 lead with a 90 degree 5/16 heavy duty lug for connecting to the fuse block.  A starter lug cover is included.  The  negative cable is 30 inch 1/0 w/16 lead for chassis ground.   Please double check measurements on your Jeep before ordering.  I can't guarantee they are right for your application.

I run these same cables on my personal 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee.  They work great.  I think the engine cranks faster and starts right up.  I even noticed the voltmeter on the dash is reading a little higher.  Of course, I didn't actually scientifically measure these before and after (I wish I had) so it's more of a "feeling" than a fact.   I've sold a bunch of them with no returns except for one when the customer specifically asked for a shorter cable... and then returned it when it was too short. 

If you think the cables would work better with some modification, please help out the next guy and let me know so I can make the change.  If you find that these cables will work for other applications, again, please let me know.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some minor modifications are needed. These cables have a straight starter lug instead of the molded starter/solenoid/cover combo. You will need to reroute the positive cable.  You will also need to cut the solenoid wire and add a terminal to it. If your Jeep is equipped with the negative "Y" cable, you will need to cut the cable and install a #8 terminal on it.  (Click here for details).  The #8 gauge 5/16 lug for modifying the negative "Y" cable, a new lug for the starter wire and pieces of heat shrink are included.
