Those battery clamps look well worth it, very clean.

That is CHEAP, online they want $34 for them and that is only the positive side.

BTW I would really like to thank you for lightning my wallet by a C note today.........went out to buy some stuff to do the same set up. I was planning it anyway but I figured might as well do it now that the whole truck is apart. I got the blade style to match my fuses and a marine dual 12v plug. I am thinking of running 12 gauge wire to each of the plugs and running them on a separate fuse, that way each has it's own power supply.

These "little" projects cost a ton and take a long time............oh well one less thing that will get done before CM. As long as everything is done for Rubithon that is all I care about.

You guys gotta see this in person. AWESOME!

Honestly Drew, I'm not sure I've seen a single project that you've put your hand to that hasn't turned out drop dead gorgeous. I wish I had your patience and expertise.

I think my favorite part are the stickers.

Tom FWIW, I couldn't justify spending the extra coin on the fatty wire to the outlets. Unless you are running some kind of high power inverter I would just run 16ish ga for all the regular stuff we run, CB's, Radio's, GPS... heck my fridge only pulls 4amps at start up! Don't get wrong there is some safety in overbuilding wiring system but that is why I dropped the coin on a nice fuse block.

Also, in all my searches, WallyWorld has great price on 12ga wire in their car audio section.

Wallyworld here I come They are good for some things

Thanks for the info, got the plugs installed and one set of wires run to the rear. Now I need to run one more set of 12-14 to the rear plug and the rest to the center console. Had to mount my block under the passenger seat. Also need to find some 4 G wire for the batt to the block...............will the fun never stop

Let me know how it works out when you get it, quality and such.

Fixed you link: Very very cool terminal, is that a voltmeter on the terminal? Too
