Fab'd and installed cut-off switch for the power cable that goes to the winch. I like it a lot better that having no fuse to the winch.

Pulled put my blown transmssion. Found a pretty good deal on a reman unit. I've been thinking of upgrading the clutches and bands and putting a shift kit in it. My trans guy says it probably isn't worth it. Any opinions?

Thanks! It's the Smittybilt XRC it has a built in winch plate, light mounts, and D-ring mounts. The welds could be better but they're not bad. It looks really sturdy as well. The best part is it isn't too expensive.

Since the winch may pull over 100 amps during a hard pull, a fuse is kinda of out of the question or you would be replacing fuses all the time.
Without a fuse the cable remains 'hot' all the time and a short could blow the battery or cause a catastrophic fire and burn your jeep up.
Not Good!!
So the switch allows the cable to remain 'cold' until the winch is needed.

Thanks for asking, I'm a newbie also, had the jeep for about a year.

I gave the key to my daughter so she can learn manual transition for two hours... Well, I stayed with the key to teach
And yeah... she will get her driving test on a Jeep, not on a car
