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?

words, things, stuff

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.

Are you new? Own a TJ? Want a TJ?

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.
