Battery Cable replacement

Ok guys I have put off replacing my battery cables long enough. They are absolutely corroded. They popped off when pulling out of the driveway and killed the truck for a sec. My question is can I get the cables already to rock and roll oem style somwhere? It seems like if I replace the end the cable will be to short. I am in the middle of a move right now so I want to replace them as painlessly as possible (I have very little time right now). Anyhow it looks fairly straightforward, any tricks I should know? Again thanks for your help I am stretched for time right now and don't wanna go to a shop. If need be I might be able to replace cables making my own. Just looking for all my options.

We have an auto parts store here that can make cables to any size or spec you need. I would try specialty auto shops not your Auto Zone chains. You might call Napa and see if they make them to spec.

Ouch

Well, Napa told me they only carry the negative cables. The Stealership!!! wanted $175, for the left side and $199 for the right side positive. Looks like a different route for me!!!!

Call shops that rebuild starters and alternators in you area, someone will make a custom to spec cable WAY cheaper..
