This is a complete replacement cable kit for the Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty trucks and Excursions with the 7.3L PowerStroke Diesel Engine(complete list below).

Stock Cable size is 1/0 AWG with a 2 AWG crossover cable if you can believe that!  Our Kit is all 2/0 AWG – 26% more copper than 1/0 AWG and double that of 2 AWG!  The kit includes an add-on 8 AWG battery to body ground cable added to driver’s side ground cable assy.  The increased cable size and improved grounding offers greatly improved cranking power and performance over stock cables, especially worn out ones.

Battery terminals include accessory studs where required to ensure a perfect factory fitment!  Kits for 99-03 trucks with Dual Alternators have a slightly longer ground cable assy for the passenger side battery!

Full specifications listed below.

Description

The factory cable set leaves a lot to desire with thin wall terminals and lugs.  In addition, none of the terminations are well insulated from the elements which causes them to break down over time.  Common problems with these vehicles are decreased starting performance, failed battery terminals, and grounding issues.  Our kit addresses all of these issues.

    This is a very very nice kit. It fit perfectly and, even for a weekend hobbyist like myself, the kit went on quickly and easily. The instructions were clear and the quality of the materials used in the kit are second to none. I could not be any happier with the product or the results! Thanks much CE Auto Electric Supply!

    I recently purchased this awesome kit for my 2000 F350 with 7.3. Prior to installing this kit I noticed electrical issues. I’m the original owner and started having intermittent voltage issues, including a random dash light. My window motors slowed over time. My headlights were slightly dimmer than years before. The horn wasn’t as loud over time. I had acclimated to a poor battery cable and ground condition. This kit is fairly easy to install and takes 3-4 hours with common tools. The supplied install instructions are easy to follow with color illustrations. Ford should have designed a battery/ground kit like this originally. After the install, I noticed faster window motors, louder horn, happier door lock actuators, brighter headlights, faster turn signals and faster engine starts. I’m sure the ECM is happier too as everything works noticeably better. I also teamed this kit up with the CE charging kit for the alternator and I strongly recommend this kit too. During the install, I sourced a Mechman Alternator from CE too. If you have a 7.3 you really need this CE battery kit the CE charging kit and Mechman Alternator (CE supplied). You’ll notice the difference immediately along with the reliability. Very pleased with the quality and worth every cent.

    Purchase this battery cable kit for my 2001 Ford F250 super duty back in June 2021. The install was easier than I thought it would be (since there was some mods that had to be made) the instructions made it easy and the kit came with all the necessary parts to complete the mods. You don’t see that very often. Now that I have run this update for 8 months I am blown away the amount of amps that are going to the starter. I have never heard a starter spin up that fast. My truck has 300k miles on it and in the past would have a hard time turning over during the winter. Granted, I am in the south (TN) so, I don’t have sub-freezing weather as the north does but it does get down to freezing. For you diesel owners with older batteries know, if you did not plug your truck in that night it is going take several try’s to start your diesel. Specially, if you have high miles. Believe it or not that was not the case this winter for me. I purposely did not plug in the truck on several cold nights (in the low 30’s and 20’s) then did the normal three glow plug warmup procedure before turning the engine over. (Note: In the past I would have to repeat this warmup procedure several times for the truck would start or I would have to jump the batteries.) The truck fired right up only once did it not fire up on the first try and that was due to operator error (not allowing the all cylinders to fully catch before killing power to the starter.)
    If you are on the fence due to the cost of this upgrade, do it, you will not regret it. It will be a completely different truck. With all the mods I have done on my diesel this mod is in the top two if not number one in return on my investment.

    The factory cables on my 2001 F250 Superduty were worn completely out causing poor connections and weak starts. I surfed the web searching for a good heavy duty replacement set of cables and found CE Auto Electric Supply. I purchased their cables, they arrived at my house in a few days and knew when I opened the box that I had made a good purchase. After installing them on my truck “which was easy with the instructions included” My truck is now starting stronger than it ever has. I would recommend these cables and CE Auto Electric Supply to anyone looking for a better set of cables.

  5. Zahir Furqan (verified owner)

    Worked perfectly! I changed this out on my truck and it’s back to running strong! Before it wouldn’t even make a sound, or have enough juice to turn my light on!

  6. Leonard Loh (verified owner)

    I was impressed with the product as soon as I opened the box. All the components reek of quality. They were happy to accommodate minor changes to the kit in order for it to fit perfectly in a 20-year-old truck that has seen many modifications. I was so impressed I also placed an order for a charging system cable upgrade. They do not have a premade kit for the charging cable upgrade so I had to provide a few measurements but that was easily accomplished. After installing the upgraded cables, my starter now spins the engine like a whirling dervish on meth. Truly an excellent product.

  7. Paul (verified owner)

    Other than bending a few terminals to make it strain free perfect, it all dropped right in. Even the custom add ons I measured for, which is a shock. Looks fantastic and works great. Combine these cables with a genuine Denso starter and you’ll get the strongest, fastest cranks ever. Huge huge difference in performance and they look fantastic. Customer service is superb also, I had questions they had answers.

    The OEM cable assemblies for the 1999-2003 7.3L trucks are discontinued and I say good riddance. The OEM set leaves a lot to be desired. CE Auto Electric Supply has given us a big upgrade with this kit in cable size/quality, terminal quality, and the fight against corrosion. They have really outdone themselves here. The quality of everything included is better than OEM and any aftermarket assembly I have used on these trucks. From the huge and very flexible 100% OFC cables, heavy duty terminals, all the way down to the included hardware every piece is high quality. Well done CE Auto Electric Supply!
