Here's a strange one I'm wondering how to deal with.
Apparently Chrysler (and Ford & GM) are starting to use Aluminum wire instead of copper in new vehicles. The stock power feed from the battery is Aluminum wire, I needed to cut and extend the factory wire as it wasn't long enough.
How am I supposed to deal with this? Finding 2/0 Aluminum wire for a house is easy, but not this thinner stranded stuff Chrysler is using, and simply butt splicing onto it well Copper and Aluminum mixed cause Galvanic corrosion...
Any ideas?

What did you end up doing? I'd either build or have built a new custom cable out of better parts/copper.
