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 help you with Ford F150 battery cable replacement!

If you don’t see what you need here please contact us and we’ll custom build something for you.

About the cables:

The cable shown below are made from cast copper battery terminals, 1/0 high temp cable and copper lugs (or 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 below.

Generation 9 F150 (1992-1997) w/V8:

I got the dimensions from a customer who needed a set for his 1996 Ford F150 with a V8.  It 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 in the application.

47" 1/0 SGX (high temp) with 4ga body starter relay lead.


Ford - 1992-1997 - Gen 9 F150 or Bronco - 1/0 Negative Battery Cable

42" 1/0 with 6ga body and frame ground leads.


Ford - 1992-1997 - Gen 9 F150 or Bronco - 10ga Start Relay to Starter wire

63" 10 gauge Premium wire w/ends & heat shrink.

Stock starters need a female spade connector.  Many replacement starters have a stud that requires a ring terminal.  Select the correct option for your truck.


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.”

Vintage Bronco and F150:

I got the dimensions from a co-worker at my day job who needed a set for his 1986 Ford Bronco.  He said this 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 can’t guarantee they are right for your application so please double check measurements before ordering.
