As fourwheelers, we have many things on our vehicles that the average car does not. For example, every vehicle taken off-highway should be equipped with a winch. In fact, a winch is a sine qua non of a serious offroad vehicle. Those who claim that they have never needed a winch are either fooling themselves or they don't truly offroad.
In addition to winches, our vehicles are fitted with auxiliary lights to illuminate the trail in low-light conditions and make nighttime fourwheeling safer and more enjoyable.
In camp, most of us use worklamps to illuminate our camp areas.
We also use items like Engel Freezer Fridges to keep our food and drinks cold and fresh. We fit equipment like winches and auxiliary lights to our vehicles to make our lives more convenient and to enhance the fourwheeling experience.
Most don't realize that the ground connection is every bit as critical as the positive connection. A poor ground degrades system performance and will cause a multitude of other problems. The JL Audio Bolt-On Master Ground Lug for 8 AWG, 4 AWG, 2 AWG, and 1/0 AWG ring terminals will ensure proper grounding that lasts under the most demanding conditions.
The solid, stainless steel lug resists corrosion and stress and accepts multiple ground cables.
A nickel-plated brass puck provides maximum contact area for optimal grounding while an aggressive star washer provides maximum bite into the vehicle's chassis.
For powering your high-amperage vehicle equipment, we recommend JL Audio Power Wire. The JL Audio Power Wire is constructed of highly flexible, 99.999% pure oxygen-free, fine-strand copper to true AWG specifications. Don't confuse the JL Audio Power Wire with inferior wire that claims to be 1/0 AWG, but is really something else. The compacted strand orientation and the very high strand count provide excellent conductivity while maintaining outstanding flexibility to facilitate routing in tight spaces.
Compare these two power cables. The cable on the left is standard 2 AWG power cable. The cable on the right is the JL Audio Power Wire. The difference is dramatic. Only top-quality power cable like the JL Audio Power Wire features such high-quality copper wires. The thicker wires on the conventional power cable enable air to get into the cable, causing oxidation of the copper and reducing conductivity. The thicker wires also make the conventional cable very inflexible and difficult to route in confined spaces.
Note how much more flexible the JL Audio Power Wire is, even though the JL Audio Power Wire shown is 1/0 AWG and the standard cable is 2 AWG. The 2 AWG JL Audio Power Wire is even more flexible than the 1/0 AWG Power Wire. When routing your thick power cables, the flexibility of the JL Audio Power Wire really comes into play. You can route this JL Audio Power Wire around and through places where inferior wire will not work.
All JL Audio Power Wire is covered with a flexible PVC jacket that is resistant to oil and gasoline and has a smooth and slippery finish for ease in running the wire through confined spaces. The red color designates positive applications and the black color designates ground applications.
JL Audio Power Wire is sold by the foot. Each foot-length of Power Wire is marked on the PVC jacket to ensure accurate measurements when you purchase.
