    Are you looking to upgrade or build your own harness?

    In that case 175A 4 gauge connectors are what you want. Although this would be a good opportunity to also upgrade the stock cables but since you're only looking to fix the connectors I'll assume you're not looking to go any farther with upgrades. But if you'd consider it, upgrade to 2 gauge cables and then of course 2 gauge connectors.

    The jump in cable size really helps the system overall.
