Replacing negative battery cable

I need to replace the negative battery cable on my 4Runner. I followed the cable into the loom, but I need to find out where it bolts to on the other end. I want to avoid cutting into the loom and just run a new negative cable since the positive cable is still in good shape. Can someone direct me to the ground location of the negative cable? Thanks

Red face

i make my own battery cables out of #1 welding cable I run one to the inner fender another to the steel engine block .

If you have a cranky starter I have also run a ground cable to the upper starter bolt but that can be a pain

This along with the replacement of the wire off the B terminal of the Alternator cures a bunch of charging and starting issues.

Thanks for the help everyone. So I'm assuming the stock setup includes only 2 grounds - a ground to the inner fender and to the engine block?

The stock set up has two grounds off the battery, the inner fender and to the engine block, but it doesn`t hurt to add a few more and use a heavier gauge wire than stock.
