Where did you get the maxi-fuse terminal?
I got the MAXI Fuse from Defender.com (LOL). I also bought the terminal from them as well, along with all of the cabling and lugs.

For the cable, I used Ancor marine grade cable, 2AWG for the winch and 4AWG for the terminal. The Ancor stuff is expensive but worth it. Each strand within the cable is solder-coated for corrosion resistance. I also noticed that the Ancor cable was more flexible than the stuff from NAPA. The Ancor lugs are also tin-coated.

I learned how to solder battery terminal lugs by watching this video:

Not to speak for Chris but I believe you can pick up a maxi-fuse terminal at a lot of auto parts stores (I have seen them at my local Pep Boys). I don't have any photos handy but will post a few after I take them but I went with circuit breakers in lieu of fuses.

Something like these...I believe they are available in a variety of amperages ranging from 50 up to 300 amps. I currently have a 100 amp breaker on my house battery and a 50 amp on the accessory battery.

I was going to install mine on SHrek ..but ..

Anyhow, Marine Circuit Breakers is a great way to go, and while there add a Fuse Block so all your peripherals are neatly mounted to the block .

You can also have the block fused ( individually or get a straight connecting block and fuse the entire block )
