Winch and stock battery cable connectors

This weekend I installed a Warn M8000 on my 2005 TJ Sport. Installation went fine with no major problems. I used the stock battery connectors (like the one shown in the picture below) when connecting the pos and neg winch cables to the battery. I just added the winch cables to the screw post where the engine cables connect.

So, my question is, are these stock connectors substantial enough to handle the load of the winch over the long term or should I replace them with a more robust design connector? Thanks for your advice!

I have used the stockers before. They work okay. Though I usually try to get a battery with another set of connectors.

Yep they work fine, have had mine hooked up that way for about 4+ years now.
