Quick Connects for winch / jumper cables

I know many of you have already done this but here are some pics to go along.

I went to autozone and bought2 of the 2 ga battery terminal connectors.
ordered Superwinch quick connects from Exp. Exchange.
Bought 4 ga jumper cables while at autozone..
Cut Terminal ens off of battery cable. Cut one set of ends of of jumper cables. Attached each side to Quick connect plugs.

what did you do to connect the wires to the grey plugs? When I wired my inverter using the same plugs, I had to take it somewhere to have the wire connectors crimped onto the wires before inserting them into the quick-connect terminals. That may have been 2 ga, I can't remember...

Well, I didnt have a crimper that size, so I took a small sledge and just smashed it in there that way. (careful not to smash too much though) worked fine.

You can also use a small torch and solder the leads into the connectors. I did that on an old Ford Ranger I used to have. You need a torch because the stranded wire dissipates the heat too fast to ever be able to heat it any other way.
