Positive battery lead

Does anyone have a factory power cable out of the truck that they could take photos of and provide measurements? I plan on building a new one for my truck, but I don't want the truck down for an extended period while I order the parts from McMaster Carr. I can track the wire from the left battery to the right and then it drops down to the front of the motor and I lose sight of where it goes. BTW If you have the negative wires as well that info would be appreciated as well.

I would recommend getting a ford part not the napa. I out the napa on my 94 the cable is too long in my opinion I have more hanging around the the original and more than I would like

Custom Battery Cables F350 cables

Custom Battery Cables are heavier gauge cable and you have the capability to use military battery clamps so you only have to replace the clamps down the line. A little modification to the starter cable the other day when I replaced the stock starter with a SD gear reduction starter.
