Yeah did it last week it cost me $5.75 for the terminals and the rest was 4ga and a fuse holder i had laying around works great! With A/c on, lights on, and radio turned up even on heavy bass notes wouldn't drop below 14 volts so I would say go for it!-Paul

You upgrade the alt to battery positive, battery negative to frame, and engine block neg to frame. What ever you do don't cut out your original wiring just add to it with bigger. I suggest 1/0. Also some people do there cab ground to frame ground. I have just started hearing about this one and havn't looked into it to know if it does anything or where its even located.

yeah, the more connections the better! I did a Ford truck the other day, the dash had almost zero ground potential so I ran a 8ga from the kick to the metal of the dash

and yes it works! I actually got better gas mileage on my 93, never tested with the 04 as I did the upgrade 2 days after I got it

I should be doing this in the next few days if my 0 gauge comes in. I'll take some pics while I"m doing it.

so you just replace the alt to batt/grounds with a bigger gauge wire?
