I'm planning on about 30 feet worth. The closest welding supply wants a bit over $3.00 per foot, black color only, for 2/0... $90. If I get the chance to measure exactly how much I need, I might save a few bucks.

Actually..... I have other 2/0 cable laying around.... I may need to rethink this, because I want to put in a cut-off switch anyway, I may not actually want to go buy new cable if I'm just going to cut it in the middle and run it through the switch anyway... Hummmmmmmm.... I might use 10 feet on one side --> switch --> 3 feet on the other side to the battery.

I used forklift SB350 connectors at the winch instead of a switch. In hindsight a switch at the battery box plus these is the best way to go for me.

switch will de-energize the whole circuit outside of the box for saftey
SB connector will allow me to use the winch wires as a jump start/charge point without touching the battery
SB connector will make removing the winch easier if i ever have to do it.

I use a marine battery so the connection the battery is especially easy

I'm planning on a switch at the battery box as well. At the winch, it'll be wired directly, but I plan to put an SB connector in parallel for an easy access jump start/charge point. This weatherproof connector will protect it when not in use. https://powerwerx.com/anderson-36036...al-boot-source

Anyone know of a good switch for the battery box to turn the + winch cable on and off?
I just searched, there’s a million of them.

I'd look for something rated for at least 250 continuous amps, 500 momentarily. Most 12v winch specs I've seen call for around 400 amp at stall.

I have this. Has been solid for 2 years, for fairly frequent and long winching jobs. A Swiss builder I know has these on at least 50 vehicles (before anyone goes "iTs nOt rAtEd fOr tHoSe vOLtAgEs"...)
