It has to do with car audio, It's replacing 3 main wires under the hood to improve your electrical system when installing a high power audio system.

Wanted to know if any of the wires were hard to find for any of you guys that have done it on the commander.

Ha, thats funny it is really common at every shop I've been too. As well as any car audio forum or shop on the net.

I haven't looked at the factory wiring from the 1)alternator to battery, 2)battery ground to chassis and 3)engine ground to chassis, but I'll bet the engine ground to chassis needs to be replaced or added to.

I didn't know it by the term "big three wiring" but I do remember helping out some friends run the wiring for their new systems.
