2ga or 1 ga would also carry the load but it doesn't have the wank factor that you are after.

LOL!

Jumper lead cable! (I've actually done it before!!)
and there is a problem with that?!
as long as the cable isn't sobid core, it should be fine.
go with 2ga. and if need be run 2 lengths of it. i dare you to find anything near the $12pr meter of the jaycar 2ga power cable. even if you run 1x0ga it would be more expensive. (unless you can buy it cheap).
