Source for #2 Gauge Battery Cable

I need to buy a couple of feet of battery cable with assorted ends and such to install a winch. The Warn came with 2 gauge wires for the power and ground.

Does anyone know of a place that sells this sort of stuff in small quantities in the Northern Virginia area or INTERWEB? I have found a fer commerical retailers that deal in 100' rolls of cable - obviously a few more feet than I need.

Airgas on Rte 1 south of Alexandria very likely -- failing that, Tractor Supply in Leesburg. There used to be a welding supply place just across from the King St. Metro, but I can't find a listing for them anymore.

Second that. Any real boat store will have it by the foot.

I got some from this guy. price seems reasonable. If you ask for a certain length and terminal size he will make up a pair.

You need thicker than that and need more of it because the battery is under the seat. 6ft each of pos and neg or maybe more of 0 gauge is ideal.

It's a great opportunity to stock up on Gr. 8 hardware, too. And John Deere shirts and dewormer if you're so inclined.
