Battery cables

Hey guys I am in need if a new positive cable. My cable has split and corrided at the passenger battery. I went to Autozone and they said they do not have diesel cables. Went to O'Rileys and they gave me one marked 97 to present. I went to put it in and at the starter relay connection on the stock cable it is connected to both sides of the relay. The one O'Rileys gave only has one connector. I am assuming this is the wrong one. Anywhere else I can get a new cable, or can I cut the battery cable on the stock one at the battery and put some other type of connector for the two batteries to connect to. This is on a F-250.
Thanks

This gent has the thick 3/0 Ga. Cables as an option, I would get a custom set of the 3/0 from him.
