These kits fit 2003- 2009 Gen 3 Dodge Trucks with the various 5.9L or 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel Engines.  These trucks originally came with dual batteries.  We offer kits specific to the 2003-2005 trucks as well as kits specific to the 2006-2009 trucks.

Stock Cable size is 1/0 AWG.  Our 1/0 AWG Kits offer improved cranking power and performance over stock cables, especially worn out ones.  Our 2/0 AWG Kits and now 3/0 AWG kits offer even greater cranking power and performance – perfect for modified trucks!  We offer them all.  Parts list and specifications listed below.

Some 2007-2009 trucks require a 90-degree eyelet on the starter cable – see the explanation below for details before ordering!  All 2003-2005 trucks use straight eyelets.

We also offer upgraded 240A Mechman Alternators for these trucks.

    Excellent product. Fast shipping. I am running these kits on two of my trucks currently and I constantly brag on them on facebook diesel pages. Fixed shifting issue in my 01 47Re and my 2006 no longer has connection and corrosion issues.

    • Tony Candela (verified owner)

      Thank you John – you’ve made my day!

  2. Casey Duerr (verified owner)

    Bought the standard 1/0 kit for my 04 Ram 3500. The factory cables/terminals were next to gone and in poor shape. This kit is incredible. This is the most complete kit I have come across. Plus the instructions are complete and clear and leave nothing to guess. I will definitely be returning for my future automotive wiring needs.

  3. Zach

    We bought a 2/0 kit for a 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab with the 5.9 Cummins. These cables are NICE! They’re as big around as nickel but SO flexible! You could EASILY tie them in a knot. It made routing them very easy. The kit came with everything we needed and completely took care of a “slow-crank” issue she’d been having. The only word of warning I have is regarding the military terminals. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE T. They’re not malleable like a lead terminal. They will crack if you try to tighten them too much. Make sure your terminal is seated as far down as it will go before tightening. Overall, this is a great kit.

    • Tony Candela (verified owner)

      Zach – spot on. Many battery manufacturers have reduced the height of the posts to save on lead. So, seating the terminal fully before tightening them is important. And like you say, we outline this fully in the supplied documentation.

      June, 2022 – ALL kits now include our newly designed battery terminals and this problem eliminated!

    3rd Gen Dodge 1 AW kit – complete and robust kit, well engineered, covered all charging / ground connections – Well done Tony!

  5. Alexander Bruner (verified owner)

    Outstanding kit and fantastic service. Top notch assembly with everything needed to upgrade my battery cables. All the components went in perfectly, and the starter spun noticeably faster when I fired it up for the first time. Clean installation, perfect fitment, and quality components. I’ll definitely be returning to buy custom cables for my next pet project!

  6. Eric Tolle (verified owner)

    Got these for my 03 Dodge diesel that I’ve had for 15 years now. I got the bigger cables and they really do help it turn over faster in the winter. These are probably the nicest most complete battery cable kit made.

  7. David Clayton

    Absolutely a premium cable kit. The kit parts are well put together and the installation was simple. Highly recommended!!

  8. Steve Joy (verified owner)

    I found that ordering from CE Auto Electric to be very easy. Tony called me personally to help me get everything I needed for my 2008 Dodge Ram diesel pick up. The kit that was sent was well thought out and very complete to the smallest component. Don’t go out and buy anything you think you may need before you go through kit. I upgraded to the 2.0 cable, well worth it. It wasn’t a real easy installation but very doable. Be careful not over tighten the battery cable clamps. After all was installed all worked properly without any problems. CE offers a great product at a fair price and excellent service.

  9. Gil (verified owner)

    Bought to replace my 2007 cables that were in terrible shape and not grounding properly. The kit is very well made, easy to install and has surpassed my expectations. Price is reasonable also for all that comes with the kit. Highly recommend for anyone with Dodge battery cable issues.

  10. Roger Rittenhouse (verified owner)

    I have a 2003 dodge diesel that I replaced the computer module. I got the new cables, installed them and the truck starts and runs smooth. I like the military connectors and I checked other places for cables and this was the best value. The connection between the battery and the starter was difficult because of limited movement and tight connections.

  11. Nathan S Dougherty (verified owner)

    Great cables, got the 2/0. Getting the + off the starter was the hardest, but cables are fantastic! 06 Ram 3500 5.9L
