External Battery Poles

I've been having some starting problems lately and I'm getting really tired of pulling out the driver's seat to get to the battery. I'm curious if anyone has mounted jumper-cable connections in a more accessible spot. Sorry if this has been covered. I searched but didn't find it.

I don't have a pic handy right now, but I mounted a quick disconnect plug onto my ARB bullbar that tied with heavy gauge wire to the leads on my winch solenoid, since that goes straight to the battery. I mounted the other quick disconnect on 16' jumper cables that I keep onboard. the setup is awesome and works flawlessly. I also got the optional rubber cap for the bullbar disconnect, that has a tether on it.

That sounds pretty neat. Could you point me to the source for the quick-connect? Thanks for your help.

Here's my setup on my ARB. Just google "battery quick disconnect". I crimped mine on myself with large brass connectors from home improvement store. You can buy a long heavy duty jumper cable and replaced one with the connector. my connectors had holes for a handle, which I used for mounting on bumper.

Get a set of long jumper cables ($25), a pair of quick disconnects ($25), and two ring terminals ($5) and you are all set. Cut off one end of the jumpers, add ring terminals, and splice in the quick connects, and mount to the exterior of the seat box. Done.

I have a very similar setup. I power my winch with it and have plugs in the front, the rear and inside the battery box. Did what Johnathan describes so I can jump start my truck easily and power my inverter (the day I want to go camping and need to power something 110V... Never happened so far...). I did put two quick connects on the jumper cables so they can still be used like they were intended to or power my winch in case I wanted to "transfer" it to some other truck (I'm just not sure the alligator style clips would handle the power needed).

I lost the seat removal when I changed my seats to Corbeaus, so I did a set of posts and a quick disconnect on the ledge of the drivers side seatbox. Worked out pretty good and only had to wire about 6 inches as opposed to running to the front of the truck. Now if you have a winch, that stuff is already up there, so it's probably best to go that way.

I did the front of the trunk because when i have to jump someone else, that's the convenient end to do it from. if you run cables from the driver's seat, then you lose about 6' of length before you even start getting over to the other vehicle you are jumping in some cases.

Good point. I carry one of those portable jumpers though, just because my bike battery always dies.
