Winch Disconnect Switch COMPLETE~ish

It isn't what I had planned however it will do for the time being. My winch is a recon 10.5K with wireless built in. I never used to keep it connected as I am leery of a random frequency finding its way to the Jeep that matches. Well that would suck to A: come outside and see it burned to the ground or B: winched my fairlead into the winch.

Well Now I solved my issue with a wicked switch. It is a Sea Systems switch for Yachts and big engines that require a power cut-off of 1200 AMPS (600 Continuous) @ 12 Volts (Less @ 48 V). The winch needs 360 MAX to haul in @ full load capacity and run time.

The project origionally started with me hogging out the lower face of an airbox ... FAIL. Then I cut the lid section out and made a plate to match the contour and material of the oem airbox ... great! then found the switch to only get hung up badly by the PCV breather ... FAIL

Sooo this wich measures out @ 4" X 4"...



Then got an interference plate mount and resulted in.........





Kinda like it but want something a bit more anamalistic. I need to fab up a plate and do an alternate mount to maybe facilitate some more mounting options at a later date??

Anyone else do a switched discon?

Always leave winch disengaged!!!! Then all you would have to worry about is a dead battery.

You smell that?

That's a great idea. I like the mount. Would be nice to mount relays to it for other accessories if you don't have a SPOD.

Damn the cannons, full speed ahead! |
