Re: batery cable

To the battery should be at least 4 gauge. To the rest of the system should be fine with around 8 gauge.

Here are a bunch of charts for DC amps vs cable size.

Talking Re: batery cable

Harbor frieght has a nice set of cables that I think are 6'. I make my bigger cables out of welding lead for golf carts and such but when I added the winch to my ramp truck I bought the Harbor Frieght cables.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
