First little project of the year. Installed the Rugged Rocks battery terminals in preparation for winch wiring and other accessories. The quality is solid and no dramas during installation. I wasn’t so sure how the factory positive fuse block was going to work with these, but with the provided spacer it went on with no issues.
Happy new year! Cheers
Interested in some of these, did you get the fuseable link as well?

I’ve also been thinking of grabbing a set, but I’ve held off because I think the biggest expense is going to be a 0 gauge crimper to change the negative to a ring terminal. How did you do it?

you can use one of those you hit with a mini sledgehammer. They work just fine and are about $20

I actually reused it. I cut the part that goes around the battery terminal so that I was only left with the flat part that has the hole for the screw. I then used one the provided screws that goes on the side of the RR terminal block. If you zoom in on the picture you can see the factory negative cable attached to the side of the terminal block. It took 10 minutes to swap and wire both terminal blocks.

I just reused the factory positive fuse block. When you order the terminals they give you an option to get a spacer that allows you to use the factory fuse block.

That's crafty! Didn't even think of that, I think I might give that a try. Thanks for the tip.

What did you end up going with?
Got the TS 2.5 Radflos through Nisstec since they are local to me. Factory Titan LCA from a friend, moog inner and outer tie rods off of Amazon, titan SPC UCAs off of Amazon, NI8433 cv axles (keeping my r180 for now) Amazon as well. I still need to order front extended brake lines and rear wheel spacers. Getting these from Nisstec as well in the next couple of weeks. I already had everything I needed for the rear suspension.

Was told the TS 2.5 Radflos would take about 7 weeks to be ready for pick up. 2 days after placing the order Nisstec calls and tells me they are ready. I wasn’t planning on T swapping until beginning of March, but I guess the mod Gods had a different plan for me. I was still missing some of the parts, but when I stopped by Nisstec to pick up the coilovers it just so happened that they had everything I needed in stock. The wallet is sore for sure, but now I have a surprise full weekend of mods! 🙂Cheers.

That looks amazing. I'm starting to plan out my Titan swap now and have been going back and forth on new wheels. Starting to see some good options finally.
