Can my ground wires be too large?
I'm grounding the dog crap out of my jeep. Some might think I'm being a little excessive hence my inquisition today. I'm using primarily 2 Guage cable from two prof. sets of jumper cables, which are a cheap source of good large guage cables.... cut off the clamps and start lugging, what's not to like? I've sent these ground cables from my battery to both fenders, grill, frame, alternator, engine(with additional braided straps for which I still don't know the answer for using braided), starter, firewall, dash, both tailight assemblies, rear frame. I'm also branching out with 10 guage wires to my distributor, ignition module, gas tank sending wire. I"m not sure there's much left anywhere else. Am I forgetting anything of any importance. This is the result of mayhem inducing electrical anomolies of which I care not to be a part of for the rest of my days here on Earth, as I intend to spend all of these days in this 87 YJ 4.2.
So.... does the larger wire pose any drawbacks?
