    The only mod is a hole in my wallet!!!!!
    hi,

    i'm starting to do my aux fuse block install and i'm going to also be helping my friend with his stereo install. Can anyone recommend a good buy cost friendly crimping tool that will crimp all the way down to 4 awg wire?

    I don't want to spend a ton on a tool I will only use a few times.

    I typically just use wire cutters. Takes a bit of practice, but if you get it down right and consistent, it'll do very strong crimps. Takes a bit of practice though, like i said.

    Why crimp when you can solder.

    Klein.

    But for 4ga, it's not going to be cheap. The $20 Kleins are only good up to the yellow connectors. Use regular pliers to set it then solder.
