    I want to replace the battery terminals on my 2010.
    I got the Ground side done but before cutting any of the leads on the power side I noticed the leads are too short.

    How have y'all gone about that? Replace the leads from both the starter and alternator?

    Help please.

    Splice more cable or buy new cable.

    I would go to an electrical supply store, buy the same size wire and splice, and then some heat shrink to finish up the job.

    I was planning on it. Just making sure I was heading down the right path on what you meant by splice.

    I was initially thinking..... "How the @!#$ am I going to heat 2/0 AWG wire enough to solder a butt splice together." :)
