    I think I paid $11.00 on Amazon for the standard type clamps.

    I had this problem. In addition to the socket trick you can crimp the clamps down slightly which seems to help with them staying tight.

    Overlander just lost his load. He's been looking for those for a while now.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Personally I'd just put new terminals on. There's an easy way to cut the stock one so you don't have to crimp anything.
    I'll see if I can grab a photo later.

    Same mod here. Glad you posted photos, I ended up doing the same thing.
    No matter how tight I got the negative terminal, it was still movable by hand.
    Eventually I snapped the bolt off that clamps the stock connector together
    Figured it was time to upgrade lol.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
