OK, I built and completed the first prototype kit today for Top Post applications. I believe you guys are REALLY going to dig this kit! These kits will be all 1/0 AWG and offered in (3) lengths, 3 foot, 4 foot, and 5 foot. As usual, I only use tin-plated OFC cable that meets the American Wire Gauge specification for all of my kits. All lugs are SUPER thick tin-plated copper (about three times the weight of standard lugs). All lugs are crimped with our in-house crimping press and then insulated with our SUPER thick adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to promote a weather resistant connection!

The 3 foot 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit sells for $115.95 and includes:

(1) 3 foot 1/0 AWG Charge Lead - 5/16" lug on one end, and 3/8" lug on the other

(1) 3 foot 1/0 AWG Alternator Ground Lead - 3/8" lugs on each end (case / mounting bolt of alt to frame)

(1) 2.5 foot 1/0 AWG Battery Ground Upgrade Lead - 3/8" lugs on each end (battery negative (-) to frame)

(1) 2 foot 8 AWG Accessory Ground Upgrade Lead - 3/8" lug on one end, and 1/4" lug on the other (battery negative (-) to body)

(1) Pair Lead Free Military Style Battery Clamps

(1) Pair Rockford Fosgate Platinum plated ring terminals (used to connect stock cables to new clamps - no tools required)

All associated hardware

Step-by-step instructions with full-color photos

The 4 foot 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit sells for $127.95 and the first two cables listed are each one foot longer.

The 5 foot 1/0 AWG Top Post Big 3 Kit sells for $139.95 and the first two cables listed are each two feet longer.

The Military Style Clamps make install a breeze. Note the RF ring terminals are utilized here to easily connect the stock cables with no special tools required.

So, you also need to run a 1/0 AWG to the rear to your amps? No problem. Note the additional 1/0 AWG power wire attached to the positive clamp - no prob as this clamp was designed to accommodate a total of three large lugs.

As with all of our charging system upgrade kits, we offer a Rockford Fosgate ANL Fuse Holder and correctly sized fuse (based on the size of your alt) for the charge lead to protect on-board electronics in the event that the alternator experiences voltage run-away. This is a $50.00 upgrade and that includes the fuse as well as an additional foot of cable for the charge lead so that you can find a nice spot to mount the fuse holder (no you can't tie it to a wiring harness) and make a nice clean run to the battery.

So here's the deal. All SMD Members get an additional 10% off all CE Auto Electric Supply Purchases. In lieu of that, THE FIRST FIVE SMD MEMBERS TO PURCHASE THIS KIT WILL GET ONE OF OUR DELUXE AMP TURN-ON RELAY KITS ABSOLUTELY FREE! This is a $29.95 value!

my biggest question, and i havent done any research, but how do you replace the battery posts with the ones you provide when my stock wiring is attached to the stock posts.

probably simple where you cut the stock wire and attach it to the new post?

Does the positive from the battery to the alternator have to be fused?

This is not mandatory, but all of the OEMs do this. See my explanation above in the original post. And yes we do offer this as an option.

The stock clamps are cut off and the included Rockford Fosgate ring terminals are attached to the cables, which in turn attach to the clamp. [see bottom two pics.]

How many runs of 1/0 could I do off of one of the Military style terminal? I am preparing to do my big 3 and 2 runs of pos and neg. Batt will be a D5100. While on the subject, how do you feel about set screw ring terminals?

The Military style clamps each accommodate (3) of the Super thick tin plated lugs that we sell - as shown in the very bottom pic at the top. As for set screw terminals, there's a ton of JUNK out there in this category so it really depends on what you're talking about. I've had great luck with the RF platinum plated ones, which is why we offer them.

EDIT: I just went and checked. I'm able to fit (3) of the 1/0 AWG Super thick eyelets (alt, and two leads to the rear) and (1) 4 AWG Super thick eyelet (stock battery cable) on this clamp no problem-o. The bolt that runs through the clamp is a 3/8-16 x 2". One could easily swap that out for a 2 1/4" long bolt and get (4) of the super thick 1/0 AWG eyelets on each. (4) lugs is the max as they have to be stacked on each side as shown in the bottom photo above.
