    I'm looking to replace the factory alternator-to-battery charging cable and battery-to-engine ground cable on my 2009 dodge 2500hd. Truck allready has the 160 amp alt and i am putting in a odyssey pc1750T battery in it. I notice the battery cables on this truck all run into the main wiring hareness, just wondering how hard it would be to do this and what labour and parts would be involved. And is it worth the trouble of replacing these cables to heavy duty ones?
    Thanks for the help

    This is the bolt i want to attach the ground cable to from the negative terminal, will that work or is there a better spot?

    If I am correct, and I might be old in the way things are done now, there should be a ground wire from the wiring harness or fuse panel to the Engine block, everything has to be grounded

    thanks, I ended up finding a vacant bolt hole on the other side of the block, just got a
    13mm bolt and i was set.
