Cheap battery terminals!

Ford always has to try to re-invent the wheel, but those steel battery terminals that Ford has used for decades are GARBAGE! If you get the slightest bit of corrosion (and you will due to the bi-metal reaction), it weakens them. When you go to tighten them, they'll snap. I want to find the correct replacement cables, but I can't find them, and the one that the good book said would fit, wasn't even CLOSE! I will replace the connectors with the lead connectors, but the wires are still 17 years old. I don't like to trust old wires. When I turn that key (in the middle of a 1,500,000 acre national forest), I want that car to start! Any ideas anyone?
