Default Time to replace battery cables.

What do y’all use? Stay factory? Build your own? I’d like to upgrade to heavier duty terminals but I’m not sure where to look. Links would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

Ford doesnt even offer them anymore. Same with the wiring harness. Gotta go aftermarket. Id go bigger diameter than factory though.

Yeah, I figured factory ford wasn’t really an option. Meant factory style aftermarket. I was definitely thinking heavier gauge though. Thanks for the advice though. I always trust your advice on these trucks.

I bought the entire cable for my super duty truck a few years ago. Cost me around $100 iirc. Much easier to just pull it out of the box and install than having to make something.

Ok... so it might not be my cables. I’m getting 14.4 -14.6 volts on both batteries when probing the cables. Driver side battery reads the same. Passenger side battery only reads 12.6. All measurements were taken at idle speed and didn’t change at 1200 rpm. I’ll try to clean the terminals tomorrow and see if that helps. Does it sound like the one battery is going bad? They are both less than a year old interstate 850 cranking amps.

Is the 12.6v from isolating each battery with the cables off?
