You’ve found this page because you are looking for battery cables for a Ford Bronco, F150 or other Ford small block V8 applications. We can help you with Ford F150 battery cable replacement!
Table of Contents
If you don’t see what you need here please contact us and we’ll custom build the perfect battery cable for you.
Our cables are made from cast copper battery terminals, 1/0 SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) approved battery cable and copper lugs (or tin plated heavy duty copper where shown). They should work great for just about any small block. Please note the 1/0 is larger than stock battery cables and may require that they are routed differently than the stock wires.
If you have a big block, very high compression or diesel engine you might want to consider 2/0 cables with heavy duty ends.
They are also available as Generation 9 F150 (1992-1997) w/V8
I received the dimensions from a customer who needed a set of replacement battery cables for his 1996 Ford F150 with a V8. This battery cable should work for any Generation 9 F150 with V8.
We’ve sold several of these kits and gotten good feedback. Note we use 90 degree ends instead of straight ends. The original customer thought that would work better for his application.
Here is what Andy in Austin had to say about this cable set: ” These cables are solid! Just holding them in your hand you notice how much better they are than the OEM cables. I have no doubt that these cables will pass the test of time. They are much stiffer than the OEM cables so installation in the tight spaces is a little tricky. Otherwise, these cables are the perfect length and all the terminals fit snugly. Additionally, there is definitely a noticeable difference in the crank time after installation of these cables. On a related note, the staff is friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable and made the whole process smooth and enjoyable. Not to mention these cables cost me less than half of what the dealership wanted to charge me for a set of OEM cables.”

We originally built this kit for a 1986 Ford Bronco. The customer said the set worked great for that application. I added the chassis ground because I think all good battery cables sets should have a good chassis ground. I’m guessing this will fit all 3rd generation Broncos (1979-1986) and 7th Gen F150s (1980-1986). Another customer used them on later model (the Gen 4 Bronco) with good results. They might fit other years or models.
