Anyone else upgraded your winch to these things? I put one on my M8274 and now just picked up a second one for the rear M8000. I love the one-stop shop and simpler hookup.

I bought a superwinch part from SummitRacing but now found a Runva 500A unit from a canadian company for around $70 shipped. That is barely more than the set of four contactors as a set.

Disconnect switches:

I bought a BlueSea 600A single-throw but did not realize quite how big it would be. It was supposed to be for the front winch but now I am not sure where to place it in the engine compartment as I have run out of room on the passenger fenderwell.

"Anderson" Quick Connectors:

Found a deal on these on Amazon, and realized that you can buy super-cheap 2 AWG jumper cables there as well. So I bought a 25' set with the intention to hack some of the cable to run the rear winch and to also give me the ability to disconnect the winch and quick-connect a set of jumper cables.

Air actuated free-spool:

My new wish-list item for the rear winch. Anyone seen these? Warn sells them for about $300 and then swap out for the clutch handle. Would be really slick for actuating the clutch on my rear winch since the clutch handle is hidden up behind the bumper.

system-f: "I just like getting the biggest thing first, then that hurdle is over with and you know for 100% you are in and not wasting your time."
