    Just checking, but the fusible links are the 2 wires going from the terminal on the firewall down to the starter, correct? Somewhere around 4 feet long? What are the correct guages of wire, mine have obviously been changed.

    they are thick...

    Most trucks have either 10 or 8 gauge wire going to one of the fusible links,(the "charge" wire that eventually goes to the alternator) ,the other is a 10 or 12 gauge...its not a bad idea to use heavier wire than stock,especially if you plan on adding a winch or other hi amp draw accessories..or a 100+ amp alternator..:crazy:
