The charging, starting, and electrical system in your truck goes through significant stress and can fail in the most extreme conditions like the temperature swings in the cold of winter and the heat of summer. As we exit the winter weather season, it’s always a good idea to pop the hood and check on your electrical system after a season’s worth of abuse. Not sure where to start? We have a few suggestions. So here are some of the best things to freshen up before your truck ends up running out of juice.
Your starter is a vital part of your truck, and after a winter’s worth of use, you might have noticed a sluggish start or two. Generally, it’s never too early to swap out to an upgraded unit!

Replacing your battery and alternator? It might be a good idea to go the extra mile and replace old or potentially faulty stock alternator cables. Additionally, alternator cables can be a great add-on when swapping your stock alternator with a high-output alternator. Whether cracked, brittle, or frayed wires are an issue. This can keep things from running optimally on your truck or running altogether. The XDP HD High Output Alternator Cable is built to last.

The battery can be the most crucial part of your system. Almost everything you use in your truck relies on the battery. If you’re noticing labored starts, dimming, flickering lights, or other symptoms of power loss, a new battery may be the next best thing you can do to your electrical system. New batteries can give your diesel all the juice it needs to keep on cranking. Do you have lots of aftermarket accessories, such as light bars, winches, sound systems, and more? All these accessories demand more power from your electrical system and battery. Get a battery that will go the distance at XDP.com!
