We offer both kits and individual cables for your vehicle

These cables are for Gen 2, 1993-1998 models with Cummins Deisel 12-valve engine and dual batteries. 

I started building these cables for a customer who sent me the dimensions for these cables for a 1997 Dodge Ram with the 5.9L Cummins Diesel.  This has become one of our biggest sellers and the feedback we have gotten tells us they work great and have solved many of the quirks that come with bad battery to battery cables and bad grounds.

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. 

Battery Cable Kits:

All complete kits include covers and loom:

Gen 3 cables shown. Your’s will be slightly different.
