We see an amazing amount of Land Cruisers in our shop and one issue all have in common are battery cables. Most of them are just junk! The original OEM cables were good and had a decent service life but on most all Cruisers from 1997 back, that service life is long over. Many trucks have the wrong terminals and scary homemade cables that make us wonder how it even made it to the shop! This makes no sense! Why challenge an old electrical system and get left on the side of the road?

The off-the-shelf battery cables are of low quality and are not heavy duty enough for the Land Cruiser. The OEM cables are very expensive and difficult to obtain and even they are not the best possible option for your truck. We have designed the best possible cables for your truck made out of the best possible materials. They will last longer than your truck!

The cables themselves are either #4 or 1/0 marine grade are listed to UL1426, ABYC and USCG approved and makes an excellent replacement or upgrade to existing Cruiser related wiring. The Type 3 stranding and tinned copper in conjunction with a cable insulation specifically designed to withstand the harsh marine and off road elements mean a long-lasting, reliable wire which will outperform common cabling. It just does not get any better than this.

The lugs are heavy wall copper that are tinned to provide the best possible current flow and resistance to corrosion. The lugs are crimped onto the cable using an industrial crimper. This provides a better contact than solder and provides much greater vibration resistance.

To seal the lugs onto the cable, we use thick-walled, adhesive-lined shrink wrap. This provides a perfect seal and will prevent corrosion for the life of the cable.

The cables are only as good as the terminals! Our battery terminals are used for mounting electrical leads to battery terminals on industrial lift trucks, tractor trucks, off road vehicles and many military applications for the US Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard. The basic shape style is for A26 battery posts. Mil spec battery terminals featuring a thick lead body and 3/8 bolt to attach any accessory needed. Both bolts are reversible to allow for an easier installation.

With each cable kit we provide a small assortment of crimp and seal connectors to facilitate the other nonstock battery connections you may have and also a length of fusible wire to use as needed. Mil Spec battery terminals with all kits and OEM fusible links are included as well on late FJ40, FJ60, FJ62 and FZJ 80s. We modify the OEM fusible links to fit the Mil Spec terminals. A full set of instructions comes with each kit and can also be downloaded here. Last but not least you get a really cool sticker; worth the price alone!

Your cables are only as good as your battery and your battery is only as good as the tray it sits on. Why mess around? Hands down the best aftermarket items ever made for the Land Cruisers are the stainless steel trays available at http://www.stainlesstrays.com . Make your installation perfect and install one of these trays!


Custom Cables:
We try to offer cable kits to fit most applications available or common in North America. There is no way we can offer cables for every possible combo of Cruiser and motor out there! Also, many folks want/need winch leads as well. We are happy to build all of this to your specifications and it really does not cost all that much.
We use 1/0 for all of the mains and #4 for the secondarys both positive and negative. We can supply size of cable as required but I think you will find the 1/0 and #4 covers most all applications. The custom cables use the exact type of materials that fit cables use.
We need the following for EACH cable:

  • size of cable
  • length of cable
  • size of eye on both ends of cable
  • specify the color shrink you want on both ends, red, black and clear and available

  • Email this info to info@urbanlandcruisers.com with "Custom Cable Order" in the subject field. Within a week or so we will get back to you with a price. Payment will be through PayPal and once payment is received, allow 2 weeks for us to build the cables.
