Jeep "Y" negative battery cable modification. 

I don't know why Jeep used that cable but apparently it's a hard cable to find.  Below is what I did on my 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it seems to be working great.  In fact, I think the volt meter went up slightly when I hooked up the new ground cable. 

Note: This is what I did on my own personal Jeep.  It is provided for information only.  I do not guarantee that it will work for you.  Perform this modification at your own risk. 

Step 1: Disconnected the negative cable from the battery.

Step 2: Disconnect the other end of the negative cable from the stud on the engine block. 

Step 3: Using a box cutter, carefully cut the tape that holds the corrugated loom and cables together. 

Step 4: Locate the "Y" in the negative cable and cut the wire going to the alternator as close as possible to the "Y".  Crimp a heavy duty #8 gauge 5/16 lug (#10 gauge is too small) on to the end of the wire coming from alternator (the one you just cut - a 310 gauge crimper works OK).  Apply heat shrink to seal the connection.

Step 5: Place the ring end of the new battery cable on the engine ground stud, then install the alternator ground wire (with the new end) and replaced the nut.

Here is a sketch of what it all looked like when done:  

Jeep negative cable

 

Notes:

The chassis ground on our cables is a few inches longer than stock for ease of installation.

The cable is a little long at 30 inches but that is what the factory cable was.
