    Does any body know how thick, or thr gauge of our batt cables. I'ts time for new ones and i'm thinking about making them myself, so i can add all the extra wires i have for my accessories right into the cable instead of clamp mounted. I might put a remote mount possitive stud off the battery! but I need to know what gauge the battery wires are thanks :gunsfiring: :eek:

    Depending on the length they cane be 0 or 00 guage. The longer they are the more 0's the guage will be.

    2/0 is different than 00.
    I believe for the PSD the stock cable is 00- use that as a minimum, especially if you want to remote stuff.
