I've been thinking about this as well. I used irrigation pipe to armor my 1/0, but with slight frame and body flex and not being able to see quite all the cable, the thought of the body coming into contact with the hot side is... I don't wanna think about it.

I have fuses in a box when I get the time to install. Probably after hunting.
... I'm thinking that the ground cables were in seriously bad shape.
OFTEN ignored. Excellent grounding solves lots of problems... from headgaskets to rust (in the case of a friend's truck at least - weird!), as well as strange electronic behavior. It's like voodoo or possession or something. We operate in some pretty galvanic environments I think. I have seen STRANGE things (and no, not just as a miscreant teenager...).
