Willys and Military Jeeps

Hopefully, you’ve found this page because you are looking for battery cables for a Willys, Kaiser Jeep or military MB or M38 Jeeps.

I own a 1948 Willys CJ-2A.  The need for good cables for my CJ is what prompted me to start this business.   So it seemed appropriate to offer cables for Willys vehicles even if I don’t sell many.

The stock cables were all 1 gauge black only.  We offer cables in 1 gauge black for the purist wanting to closely match the stock cables for restoration.  We still use the cast copper ends and heat shrink the ends so our cables are still better than the cast lead stock replacement cables sold at some Jeep specialty sites.

For the owner more concerned with performance than stock looks, we offer cables one size larger in 1/0 gauge, either red or black.  Since the only difference is a little copper (labor to build them is the same) the cost for the larger cables is very minimal – only about $2 per cable.

Please double check measurements before ordering.
