Thanks for the replies!

To give you a run down, just put on a T Max 9000 winch. I can't find much info on the brand other than it's 5.5 hp series wound motor and it came with the wireless remote. It's brand new and I picked it up for $250 so can't complain. I still run the stock alternator so was looking for a nice alternative to switching out alternator just yet. I saw a couple people run them, but they always had problems with them sticking on and over revving the engine. I had a switch from a mountain bike that I've been holding onto. It's the thumb gear shift up and thumb shift down kind. I'm hoping this will keep it from jumping up to high. I left enough slack in the cable to keep it from holding up the accelerator... I think. I just attached it under neath my click on throttle linkage so it holds it on with a crimped on loop style fastener. First clicks have no effect because of the amount of slack I left, but the next click gets me to 1100 rpms, next click to 1500rpms, next click gets me 2000rpms.... It seems to be working. I've stepped on the gas to see if it will hold up the return. Only offroad will tell. Do you guys disconnect yours for inspection and on road driving? I can't imagine it's legal to have on... thoughts?
