I know this sounds stupid but I'm trying to fix my battery ground.. It broke completely from connecting to the truck itself. I can probably splice the wires and attach them to the screw with a washer or something but I'd rather just but a new one. Does anyone have any good suggestions to fix this? I can't find a replacement for the life of me anywhere and I don't want to fry to pc of my truck by doing a sloppy job. Thanks

You are referring to the ground cable off the battery right? If so, you can order one from Toyota Parts - Genuine OEM Toyota Auto Parts and Accessories (http://www.toyotapartszone.com/) or various other on-line Toyota parts suppliers. I don't recommend you go to a local Toyota dealer parts counter, as first they'll probably have to order it also and then charge you out the A** for it also.

Ya exactly.. I found this
Part Detail (http://www.toyotapartszone.com/Page_Product/PartDetail.aspx?model=TUNDRA&year=2006&catalogCode=841420&VAID=3233,3263&selectConditions=(8=USA;1=2UZFE;4=SR5;7=DCB)&originCountry=(8=USA)§ionID=4&isBigPicture=False&componentsID=82-01&componentsIndex=7)
But it said only the positive assembly and I need the ground. Is this an entire set up do you think? If I could just find a metal bracket to use and ground to my truck I'd prefer that but I can't find one nor do I kno what it's called.. Thanks!

That isn't the cable you need as it's the positive cable, not the ground cable. What exactly is wrong with your current cable? Is just the eyelet connector where it connects to the fender well bad, or the connector on the battery?

The eyelet completely broke off.. I'd rather just fix that alone but where can I find this cable with a new eyelet? Or where can I find a replacement bracket to put over the cables? I've been looking around I just don't know what to call it to look for or what the best course of action is.. I need my truck up and running in 4 days :(

I'm guessing you're saying that the terminal lug on the ground cable where it connects to a 10 mm bolt on the inner fender is what broke? Attached is a pic from my truck. The black wire with the gray stripe goes to the battery ground cable.
If that's what you need you can buy one at Auto Zone, PEP Boys, or another auto parts store. You just need to cut off the old connector, strip the insulation back, and crimp the terminal lug onto the cable with some pliers or by squeezing it in a vise.
