I got everything I need to put battery in hatch, I was just curious as best thing to do with stock power and ground cables. It looks like the stock ground has a couple wires coming off of it that are needed, and the power cable has two wires attached to battery, figured I'd see what some of you do to hook it up properly.

our ground from the battery is attached to the cage, in front to the chassis, the hots up front are ganged together and connect to the 0 guage wire that goes back to the battery

Just make sure that you do not have anything that can come into contact with the distribution block up front.

I am going to coat it with the red stuff, so it should be all good.
