Hopefully, you’ve found this page because you are looking for battery cables for a Ford Diesel F-250 or F-350.

How we build the cables:

The main cables are built from 2/0 (“two-aught”) or optional 3/0 cable for the starter.  We use tin plated (for corrosion resistance) terminals at the battery and standard copper lugs at the engine.  To prevent corrosion from the battery’s acidic fumes, we crimp the terminals with a 12-ton hydraulic crimper then seal the connection with adhesive lined heat shrink.  Cables are shipped with anti-corrosion battery washers, military-style battery terminals with “Nylox” style lock nuts. 

More about the cables:

We got the dimensions by measuring sets of cables that customers have sent to me over the years.  We’ve sold a bunch of these over the past 15 years however, I suggest you inspect your old cables and make sure these will fit before ordering. 

Stock negative cables are 1/0 with #10 gauge chassis grounds.   Our negative cables are a heavier 2/0 with #6 gauge chassis grounds.  The stock positive cable uses 1/0 for the crossover, 2/0 for the starter and #6 for the fuse block.  We use 2/0 for the crossover, 2/0 (optional 3/0) for the starter and #4 for the fuse block.  The heavier gauge wire reduces resistance and might make starting a little easier.

We build our cables using copper lugs crimped to SAE battery cable using a 12-ton hydraulic crimper.  Then we seal the connection with adhesive lined heat shrink.  Battery washers are included. We make the fuse block and chassis ground wires a little longer than stock since the #4 or #6 wire is not as flexible as the tiny wire the factory uses.

Military Ordinance/Universal Terminals: These terminals allow the customer to add as many electrical accessories as they want. They also have the advantage of being able to replace just the terminals and not the entire cable. We provide a Nylox nut to help you make sure that the bolts remain tight. 

Options:

Optional 3/0 Starter wire: Some customers have asked me for a 3/0 starter wire for very cold climates where every little bit helps.  It’s now an option when ordering cables.

Military Terminal Covers: Protect against accident short circuits and damage by using these PVC covers on the terminals.  These are included in the price if you buy a full kit.

Convoluted loom: This is the wavy plastic stuff that the factory uses to protects wires from physical abrasion.  We’ll add it for $5 per cable or you get it for free when you buy a complete kit.
