Here's the strip:
A Possibility


There's a buncha smart folks in here giving you advice and unless I missed it somehow, they didn't tell you that mounting anything to your PCM will probably be a very bad idea.

Haha yeah, I actually realized that pretty quickly when I looked at that more closely, and realized that drilling into that would be a very bad idea.

Don't understand.

Greetings

Just got a 2013 Rubi 2 door and I've started the mod process (Warn powerplant, aux lights, CB radio, etc...). Stopped in at SEARS and purchased the Platinum P34. Tried to install it but it wont work because the terminals are reversed. Meaning, the (-) terminal is against the fire wall and (+) terminal is facing the grille (front of jeep). The wire, (+), against the fire wall and not long enough the reach the (+) terminal of the battery. I can't even stretch it across the battery!

So...what you all have been talking about sounds interesting. Someone mentioned NOT having alot of wire attachments to your battery posts....I like this idea. Then someone mentioned a circuit board? Thats where I got lost.

In summary....I need your help. What route do you recommend I take.

Thank you,
jim

Well the whole point of me starting this thread in the first place was that I literally couldn't fit all my wires onto the terminal on the battery. Forget about the circuit boards. I'm not sure why you can't just turn the battery around to fix your problem, but we have different year Jeeps, so idk what yours looks like.

The solution I found from this thread and a similar thread on Jeep Forum was to buy the Blue Seas fuse box. All of my accessories will be (when I get around to it) wired to that fuse box, and then one heavy gauge wire will go from the fuse box to the battery. This way you'll have only the main power cable and the fuse box cable on the battery. And you should probably leave the winch line on there since its big. But all of the little stuff, like lights, stereo, amp, cb radio etc will just go to the fuse box. All of those accessories are traditionally wired with inline fuses, but you eliminate this with the addition of a fuse box, because all the fuses are in the box. Then you can label them, and don't have to go tracing wires to find a blown fuse. The fuse box takes all the little wires off your battery, and cleans up all your wiring.

One of my buddies installed that fuse box behind his center console. So all of the accessories that are inside the Jeep (stereo, amp, cb etc.) don't have wires penetrating the firewall to go to the battery; only the one wire from the fuse box has to go.


Also, post a pic of your battery problem so we can see exactly what you're talking about.

Go back to Sears and get the right battery. Somewhere in their invetory, they'll have the right one.
