The local parts stores sell generic battery cables in various sizes.
Could your fan belt just be loose or polished up so it is slipping? This can also cause the dive under load. i test them by taking a cold off engine and seeing if I can hand slip the alternator pulley by hand, if I can and the belt is still tight, then it has been polished up from mud (mud=liquid sandpaper) and will not hold under load. Polished belts don't squeal often either, usually they just slip. Loose belts squeal.
I recently just had the same issues, dying all over the place, with a 2000 XJ and cleaned the mesh chassis ground, no joy. It then fixed itself on our rough 4x4 driveway so I looked at the mesh cable really close and found it rotted in the middle where it wasn't visible. It tore it in half with my fingers.
