does anyone have an in-depth write up on upgraded wiring and fuse/fusible link?

The fuse able link will protect the wiring. As long as you don't pull more amps than the link is good for, you should be fine with you're old wiring.

Small addition: I also replaced the stock 90A alternator with a 160A Durango unit used in my '97 TJ SE. I had to fab a little piece to get it connected but it bolted up fine iirc. I ran that setup without addressing the wiring (didn't know it was an issue) from 2000-2006 or so and never had any problems.

just not a risk i'm willing to take when doing this upgrade

would a high amp draw winch be able to pull more power than a 10 awg fusible link can handle?
would there be any downside to putting the fusible link between the battery and PDC?
knucklehead linked an article in another thread that went over fusible links in good detail. it outlined why it is not a good idea to replace a fusible link with a fuse or breaker, as was my original idea
