A couple suggestions for 'ya...

Wrap all the wire under the truck and/or any wire that goes over or through any metal with some split loom tubing.
It's cheap insurance against frayed wires & if you use black loom, your wires will almost disappear under the truck.
Cable tie every foot or so just for added protection against wires getting caught on something.

(if you haven't already thought about it) Grab some big old battery terminal blocks for that big cable.

Looks pretty good so far.

THIS or THIS should handle that wire.

I've got a couple of those BIG plastic storage boxes in my garage full of all sizes of wire loom. You can never have enough of that stuff.

I've ordered a ton of stuff from that place over the years, good place to deal with.

BTW, the MAXX batteries are pretty darn good. I had the previous version that lasted 7 or 8 years before it died. I got one of the MAXX batteries a year or so ago & have no complaints so far.

Good to know. I'm getting it for $50. The terminals on it alone cost $40. They have 3 holes on each for a run of 0g. 6 runs on one battery FTW.
