heavy duty battery terminals?

Wondering if anyone can steer me toward a good set of heavy duty battery terminals, something that will keep the wires from aux lights, winch, etc fairly organized. Soon as I get some time I'm gonna add some rear fogs, KC lites at the windshield, another set of lights on the front bumper and a winch.

Is this a Batteries Plus / Autozone kinda deal, or does someone make a quality aftermarket product specifically for the JK?

I saw some on Quadratec, but they don't fit the '12, for some foolish reason. Unless the dude I instant chatted with didn't know what he was talking about.

Any suggestions? I'd like to minimize the "bowl of spaghetti" look under my hood as much as possible.

Try a Napa store, they have the heavy-duty military battery terminals. Make sure you get the pos. and neg., as they are different sizes.

Any kind of stations on 'em for adding / subtracting wires easily?

Good stuff. Thanks, guys.

The big thing is to find a combo of hd terminals with accessory busses that can accept numerous add-on wires.

If all else fails I might buy a couple of hamsters and running wheels, see if I can find 'em a nice home under the hood somewhere.

You could go with a dual post battery. That is expensive though.
Seriously, you could fab up an 8 or 10 gauge wire and run it to a seperately mounted wire block to power your accessory lights. I would run a relay style set up to provide max voltage to your lights.
