Installing Quick-Connect Jumper Cables
Wrangler Power Product’s heavy-duty battery jumper cable kit simplifies giving a boost in the field
by Bruce W. Smith
Dead batteries are a common occurrence around construction sites. Employees leave their lights on, old batteries fail, or good batteries get drained running warning lights and other accessories.
Whatever the reason, the vehicle with the dead battery is going anywhere unless it’s jumped.
That’s why having a set of jumper cables that can be plugged in quickly is a nice item to have on a work pickup.
A premium line with a lifetime warranty are available from Wrangler Power Products.
Wrangler’s i-Light Battery Jumper cable system is designed with both safety and easy-of-use in mind. The set utilizes polarity-protected quick-connect plugs, 2ga ultra-flexible cables and heavy-duty clamps.
Installation takes less than a short coffee break.
The only “install” is connecting one cable half to the terminals of the host battery in your pickup, running the connector through the grille to the bumper — or in our case, the side brace on the Go Industries grille guard, and bolting the plug into position.
A little trick in mounting the connector is to use 1/4-inch thick aluminum spacers to make the plugs easier to grab and connect/disconnect. (You might have to drill a 3/8-inch hole in the side plate in none exist.)
No muss. No fuss.
Just a clean, easy battery jumper cable system to give a co-worker a needed boost.
