M8000 in cab winch control

Getting ready to put my 12 Volt Guy in cab winch control in tomorrow.

Anyone have any hints or suggestions regarding the M8000?

The 12 volt guy panel and wire harness is very nice and labeled well. Just wondering if anyone had any words if wisdom.

Dude-have any updates? I'm thinking about going with 12 volt guy for in cab winch controls and multi switch panel for ARB lockers and compressor.

Here is a shot of it, yes, the panel locates to the left of the steering wheel, just above the speaker.



The winch panel and switches are super well made and very nice looking...and customizable, you can choose a number of different switches and arrangements.

I would highly recommend getting the wiring harness along with the switch panel. It makes the wiring easy and comes with a wiring a scheme.

Getting into the M8000 was easy and after a little testing to see which solenoids operated the "in" and "out" it was just a matter of wiring it up.

12 volt guy stuff is top notch!

Thanks to Cru9 for the extra set of hands, always makes for a better install.

Post up a picture of that location where my switch is, I would like to see how the OR Fab would work with it.

It cuts off the behind the dash access plate, which would make trying to wire up something a little challenging...probably doable though.

That's what I thought you meant but wasn't sure.

Now I'll hijack my own thread...does your OR Fab cage go all the way down to the tub? Wondering how the ORF compares to the Poison Spyder cage.

Yessir, I have their floor plate kit that goes to the bottom of the tub with 3/8" plate. 5- 3/8" stainless bolts to the pinch seam as well. PSC has a nice setup however, it came out about a year after I bought the OR-Fab, or I'd probably have that one, the floor kit is a nice addition however.

Thanks Goody.

Yes, wiring a switch panel in the location I did would be a PITA for you, having to remove that piece of the cage. 12 volt guy has other options for you.
