What ya'll use to remove the battery terminal clamps on your SuperDuty-Excursions batteries? I know some use a small 5/16 wrench,others use a crescent and some a pair of plyers:D

I been using a GM battery terminal wrench for ours trucks probably for the last 9 years,yes a GM tool. Easy off and easy on! I recommend it :sweet

Never use pliers or adjt wrenches. I use 6 point sockets or wrench noted above. I believe we use 8mm, not the 5/16" GM uses. You want to check with a socket before you buy that gimic.

I'm not sure when if the terminal nut sizes changed after the run of the 7.3 or what year of the 6.0.

I found a ratcheting wrench like you've got pictured, but it's got two sizes...5/16 and another (can't remember..)

Works good....on our suburban.
