I ran 2/0 when I rebuilt mine with the 9.5xp motor and don't regret it, I remote mounted the solenoid box under the hood though so the connections between the solenoid box and the winch motor are about 3ft long.

The max current you are looking at is at full load, how long are you really at full load? If its pulling that hard its normally only for a few seconds and then it eases up. Warn ships their winches with 2 guage leads which I personally feel is inadequate but they must think it's a good compromise between price and performance. I think 2/0 is on the heavy side but I don't think its overkill.
