Replace Battery Cables

I have a 2001 f250 7.3l with 180k. None of the battery connectors tighten anymore and some spots on the wires look pretty bad. So im wanting to replace all the battery cables before i have a bigger problem. Can someone provide me part numbers for the cables? Here is my vin just in case. Also i was wondering if theres anyway to tell if my truck is a XLT or lariat. One last thing, Im wanting to get a aftermarket intake. Any suggestions?

You can get them made a heck of a lot cheaper with way better connectors.
If you took all of them off and to a shop that does that kinda stuff they'll do it for you. Same size wire, connectors, length, etc.
Well, as for the trim, usually the F250 badge says it on it. What kind of seats and color do you have in it?
The best intake for your buck is the DIY intake.

Go to fordparts.com enter your vin and you can look up part numbers for just about anything. Refrence the part numbers on ebay or google and you will find your part. cheaply.

I replaced my whole positive battery cable with a new factory unit bc the po had cut off the nice ends and spliced on stupid gold ones for a system. I think I paid around $60 and it looks factory again.

I think the part # is wc95931 but I'm not 100% positive.

Be careful when you mess with the starter. I broke a lug off mine when I did the cable and had to replace it.

My truck started better and faster than ever. My voltage also went from 13.5 to 14.4 from the bad charging wire connection

I just replaced both grounds and the hot wire. I went to a ford dealership and got them for about 150 bucks. That's high but everything is soldered in and is the way it came from the factory. Including every mount and connector to hold the wires
