Default Power Connector for 12V Boat Trailer Winch

I've recently purchased a 12V winch for my boat trailer. The current draw will be in the 75A to 110A range according to the data sheet.

I'm planning to run 2AWG power cables from the car starting battery to the rear bumper of my NL 6g74 Pajero.

Are Anderson plugs the best choice for the plug connector at the rear?

Are there any real alternatives anyway?

Good advice appreciated.

I think the normal size Anderson plugs are only good for (or rated to 50A. However there are much larger 175A Anderson plugs available. I'd just run appropriately sized and fused cable to under the rear of the car to a plug. Then extend the winch cables with a plug to reach the plug under the rear of the vehicle.
