    This. I’m doing the military style on this truck too. I did them on my crawler years ago and now it’s the only way.
    I had seen them for a while and always thought they were a neat gimmick. I ended up installing a set on a buddy’s Jeep at his request 3ish years ago, and it’s all I will use since.

      I've done hundreds of those in a bunch of sizes, I always peen the barrel before heat shrink to help me sleep better. Never had an issue.

        I just finished making up some replacement motor leads for an XD9000i

        I didn't have solder slugs small enough for #4, so I just slobbered some flux in the barrel and on the bare wire, snipped off some flux core electrical solder chunks and put them in the barrel. Heated until molten, added an extra chunk of solder and bingo bango electrical connection.

        TLDR: You can just use chunks of solder if you don't have "solder slugs"

        I realize it's not rocket surgery, but someone might find it helpful...

            Gotta get some.

            We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

              Yup.

              Mine have more than paid for themselves.

                so how does the price compare with getting some hard-core connections from a mobile audio establishment??..

                the high-end stuff..

                  The car audio ones use a shitty set screw to secure the wire in the terminal. Military style terminals are better in every way.

                      Those are overpriced. They can be had for $6 to $7 a piece.

                        If you use the set screw type, a least make sure to use a wire ferrules so the screw isn't tearing into the conductors.

                          Isn't that what makes for a great connection? If you schmoo the two metals together (while exposing fresh unoxidized layer) then they should conduct really, really well.

                            16ton hydraulic goes up to 4/0. Twice the price, though, $57.

                              Probably until you start cutting into the strands, breaking them off, creating a thinner section in the wire.

                              High voltage, which yes I understand we are not talking about here, the connections between two components are made with flat pads bolted together. The pads are often welded or crimped onto the conductor.

                                i bought a hydraulic crimper off amazon and was not happy with it at all. It looked very similar to that one you posted but there are so many chinese knock offs on amazon that it is hard to tell the difference.

                                It feels weird saying this, but the one from harbor freight is better. My buddy has one at work at it works great. I think HF crimper is $10-$15 more than the amazon one.

                                I think the hydraulic part is the same, but the problem with the amazon one was the dies. They have a number on the dies which you would think would be the gauge wire it is for, but no... you look up the wire gauge on the chart provided, and then it says to use a a certain number die and they are not in any particular order. Then, there is a threaded hole to screw in a pin to attach it in the jaws, the holes are in a different location on each die and some are drilled crooked, so the dies are crooked and can spin in the jaws so you cant get a straight crimp to save your life.
