    Unless you have another use in mind than the tacoma, those are seriously overkill. You'll end up leaving them at home due to the weight and size. 4AWG booster cables of decent construction are perfectly adequate for boosting a tacoma or anything you should boost off of one. Now, for a diesel with 2, 3, or four batteries, those would be OK.

    This. The little carrying case they come in makes them fit perfectly in the rear seat storage area.

    i found some 0 welding cable and built my own with 500AMP ends for napa. They are 20feet long if you can find wire 2 guage wire and stay below 15 feet long you should be able to build your own for less. Last i heard you could pick up 0 wire at welding stoors for $4 a foot so $4X2X15= $120 plus ends those where like $20 a pair yours still cheaper and have way better cables. just puting that info out there.

    no way...you could get 1/0 gauge cheaper..

    for example:
    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...YLSkvw4xBFL3UDg&bvm=bv.58187178,d.cGU&cad=rja

    me, i hit the lotto. cleaning out a old house. i found a pair of BRAND NEW 1/0 Sears cables. long, thick.

    the best part? they are the most flexible cables i have ever found. i love them. the cables are white, so they get kinda dirty..but i am never letting them out of my sight. i bet they are 30 years old..brand new.

    There is no way I could drop $200 on cables, especially since they rarely get used.

    If they can sell them for $20 or $30 each to our group like Pugga said, I would be interested too. I highly doubt that would happen.

    I think a 20' 4guage set is sufficient enough. ~$30

    Actually I found a really old thick set at my parents I need to grab. 2 new ends and they will be better than anything currently sold in stores.
