Default Ground cable right next to the battery on the left is too short. Can I replace that?

I found out my problem for my xj not starting. Thanks guys. Anyways something else is bothering me. I guess when I was installing new terminals last month I cut the ground cable to short and it makes the battery terminal but barely. I hope someone knows what I am talking about.
It's to the left of the battery.




What kind of replacement do I get for that.

Would any type of wire work or does it need to be a specific gauge?

Thanks. Really helped. I bought a new cable from autozone and now my new problem is the old one does not seem to want to loosen out. The bolt is just stuck. It literally just broke my socket wrench. Got any tips?
