    You're talking about the type of terminal that has a bolt running parallel to the bolt that secures the terminal to the battery? Then you stack ring terminals on that second bolt?

    My buddy has those on his jeep. It's been awhile now, but we found them at NAPA. Find the counter guy who looks like he's been there for awhile and they should at least be able to order them. I think they were in the Belden (brand name) catalog that NAPA should have behind the counter.
