This is the on to the Engine



And this one goes to the Hood



Both go to that Bolt you see on the Fire Wall, one end of one to the Engine Block, one end of the other to the underside of the Hood. They are both just Flat Grounding Straps, but you could also use a small like
Motorcycle Negative Battery Cable with eyelets on both ends. A #8 wire with ends, or a host of other items can also be used. Just be sure all connection points are clean and tight, otherwise what's the use.
Hope this helps.

That will work just as good for sure. Most Engines are grounded to the chassis
in some form or other anyway. The Cable just insures there is always a good
constant connection between the two.

I was just redoing that connection in 1/0 gauge wiring... got a highish current system running through there, and looking to do a higher current one in the future....also my 250Amp alternator require 1/0 gauge. lol

That's GREAT, I like it when someone does it RIGHT the FIRST time around.
And they'll be glad too, when they DON'T have to re-do it a 2nd or 3rd time.

Working on the big 3 upgrade I see...how easy is this on the Jeep? Or is that the only ground you've upgrade so far?

I'm hoping to replace all my connections on my Jeep soon...got a cb radio with a ground problem I'm hoping to fix.

Big three upgrade is super easy on a wrangler.
to an extent. for me it was easy because I didn't need to beef up my wiring going into my fuse box

the big three was fairly easy, just make sure you have enough 1/0 gauge or whatever you used. I ran out and had to go to a low end car audio shop and pay double the price for crap wire......
