I made mine a tad bit too long and have yet to either shorten it or just tape it up. Here's the thread that I followed:

You should upgrade your charging system to 0ga

And I was wrong about the tires. They're Mickey Thompson too. But I'm gonna need new shocks before I could do the swap and his tires don't have near the tread mine do

And about how much work does that entail? I assume I'd need to basically re-create the wiring harness for the charging system? It's definitely a though, I plan on a dual battery set up and of course some lights and down the road a winch.

Run 0 from batt to alt the 0 for the batt grounds it's easy you'll have more power after to.

You should not. There is no way in hell you need zero gauge wire for a 160 amp alt. 4 gauge would not be a bad idea, 2 gauge if you like overkill. Check out the faq's on powermaster.com. They make high amp alternators and I trust they know their stuff on wiring. Yes. You will be making your own version of the factory charge wiring. Be sure to upgrade the grounds too.

Rust never sleeps...

Well not today but a week ago or so put a K&N cold air intake on and can already tell a slight difference in mpg from a half tank after install. Very worth it IMO.


Today and sorta yesterday installed 2 12" subs not as scary as people made it sound although. Pics soon

I'm going to assume that stock wire size is 6? All I would need to make was the charge wire from the battery to the alternator and the grounds? Nothing to the starter?

Kind of new to electrical systems, clearly.

Naww starter is doing fine. it's only use is to crank over the engine until the engine can run itself
