Noticed the following listing on ebay. 
ICOM - OPC-1444 Separation Cable for The Icom IC-7000 Transceiver.

I see that this seller Joslyn1980 has sold a few going by positive feedback. 
So anyone that's looking one.
This may be a place to get one if your stuck. 
Seller based in UK/Europe. 

Here's the link.

Does anyone make a separation cable that is longer than the original. Traded trucks and need one that is about three feet longer than the original cable or will have to put radio under front seats with two other radios.

I'm not aware that anyone makes a longer one than the OPC-1444 whick is about 15ft
I suppose if you needed a longer length it's possible to cut and extend with similar cabling    I've never tried it though.

Won’t a Cat5 cable work?

A Cat 5 cable has 8 wires while there are 10 pins for the connectors for the separation cable.

 

Consider connecting two separation cables in series.  The connectors are compatible.  In addition to the 1444 the normal cable is slightly shorter which might be useful if your desired length is less than 30 feet.

Yesterday I found out that the HRO store in NH had 6 in stock. Now they only have 5. Thanks for everyone's help.

I've recently purchased an IC-7000 and am looking for the separation cable, without much to show for it. Is there a work-around to enable me to separate the head

I have one of those HDMI-based separation cable kits and it works very well.
I think I dealt directly (rather than ebay) it was a year or so ago but if you get stuck, I can probably dig out the details

I was initially concerned that the plugs might drop out of the HDMI connectors -- but no, not even with my Land Rover 90 doing some bumpy 'green laning' :-)
