Note that the cables are not an exact drop-in bolt-on replacement.  They require that you splice leads into the existing wiring (more info).

The cables are built from 2/0 (“two-aught”) cable for the starter and engine block grounds.  After we crimp heavy-duty copper terminals with a 12-ton hydraulic crimper, we seal the connection with adhesive lined heat shrink which helps prevent battery acid and acid fumes from corroding the cables.  Cables are shipped with anti-corrosion battery washers, nuts and bolts with an anti-corrosion plating and connectors and heat shrink to complete the splice.

 These cables are for Gen 2.5 Dodge Ram Trucks (1998-2002 models) with 24-valve Cummins Deisel.

We offer both kits and individual cables for your vehicle.

How we build them:

The cables are built from 2/0 (“two-aught”) cable for the starter and engine block grounds (with optional 3/0 cold weather/hard start upgrade) and the tin plated (for corrosion resistance) copper terminals.  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.
