Here is something that might be up your ally. I believe the size of our cables are 2/0 gauge.

I'm pretty sure we have 2/0 gauge positive cables. The website looks good I too need to do some new cables for mine.

Heavy Duty, Aftermarket, Custom Battery Cables for your Car, Truck or RV for custom made cables or parts (and great advice too). If you look there they also have the correct length of cables listed.

Use 2/0 welding cable. I would strongly suggest crimping instead of soldering. I did a couple of solder joints and didnt like the results. You dont have to buy a crimper you can rent them for a day.

Heres what mine turned out like:

I'm a fan of welding cable myself.

Actual battery cable is much cheaper - but I like the welding cable too. It had good abrasion resistance due to the rubber jacket.
