Here's a few more.... enjoy
200 Amp alternator.
You can see I left the OEM alternator Black/Orange wire taped off.
100 Amp fuse & holder that feeds my audio distribution fuse block in the cab.
That 1/0ga wire is a little rough to bend, but not nearly as bad as crimping the ring terminals.
I wrapped some wire loom around those two lines in front of the fuse holder to keep from shorting the battery or fuse when installing or changing fuses.
Battery, side & top shot.
Yup, two 1/0ga ground wires. One goes to the starter & the other ties the battery to the body to the frame. No grounding issues here.
These battery terminals were made for 1-4ga, 1-1/0ga & 2-8ga cables. I drilled out one of the 4ga holes to squeeze in an extra 1/0ga cable on both terminals.
Positive side has a 1/0ga to the alternator/relay/fuse setup while the other 1/0ga runs up to the 100A fuse & into the cab where it feeds a fused distribution block. There's a fuse (same holder as the audio fuse, just a 250A fuse instead of 100A) between the alternator and the OEM relay thing.
The 6ga+/- red wire is the OEM wire to the starter. The small wire under that one goes to.... something, I can't remember right now.
The wires were so close together that I couldn't get the wire loom all the way up to the terminals.
The small power wires connected with ring terminals go to the fog lights, backup lights & wimpy air horn.
The gold bolts that came with the battery terminals used an allen wrench & a nut. I could never keep up with the allen wrench & the darn things were already starting to rust so I replaced both bolts with stainless steel bolts & nuts. I'd like to see THESE rust!
Fog light relays.
I wanted to keep the relays out of the way, so I made a bracket & bolted them under the fender/hood lip.
The fuses are tucked away in front of the battery. Not much to see there.
You can also see my hi-tech battery hold down device.
Luckily, this battery just fit in the OEM location. I think it had the most CCA's of any of these MAXX batteries. Hopefully 850/1000cca's will be enough.
