    Just getting it prepped for any future upgrades. I figured if others are doing it now, that’s it will be a good time to do mine too.

    I'm preparing to put in a winch and I need new battery connections. So might as well upgrade the wires .

    I was thinking about going with this wire. 1/0 Gauge Premium Extra Flexible Welding Cable 600 Volt COMBO PACK - BLACK+RED - 10 FEET OF EACH - EWCS Spec - Made in the USA! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016HFD5G2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_hF-xBb73BCE04.
    And buying a 10ton hydraulic crinper.
    But I was wanting to see if anyone had one first.
    And I already have these Military Spec Battery Terminal Top Post Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00X36RILW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_JI-xBbD498994

    I would so like to do this on my 2nd gen. I did a this on my 350z and I’d like to say it made a difference, that system had like 5 to 7 grounds though.

    I’ll be out of town until about then, so mid August or even later would work great for me.

    In the the Southeast valley, where are y’all?
