    Distribution block for the engine bay

    I have a truck I'm wiring up, and I'm having some issues with getting everying connected.

    I want to keep the stock wiring and add the rest of the wiring to do the big 3 and a run back to my amps (4awg). That makes 3 big fatty ring termals all attached to the battery terminal by a small bolt.

    Is there a good distribution block that I could keep in the engine bay that supports ring terminals on all ends? Or is there a better way to attach all those ring terminals to the battery?

    Thanks for the reply! I actually tried this before. I bought a terminal with bolt screws, but the stock wire was about an inch too short to reach. So if I were to use that terminal, I'd need to modify the battery box, which I really don't want to do.

    Check out street wires. If I am not mistaken they have a junction block that you bolt the ring terminals into
