For those that asked for a write up on the panel and fuse block, here's what I've got so far.

just bolted up my smittybuilt corners. Man i might be in some trouble getting the leds cut out my hole saw just wasnt cutting it and stuck a bunch became very dangerous so i need to figure out another way. anyone have any tips? I can take it all off at my grandmas tomorrow here partner has a nice shop im going to be using tomorrow for motor mount swap and he has a acetylene torch i can do it with but ive never been able to do a sturdy cut with a torch. I have a black and decker jig saw id need to pick up some heavy duty blades though.




also i dont like the look of the corners next to my sliders. has anyone sanded these down flat and repainted them to match. i think thats what im going to do.

Repaired the blown center console subwoofer with only slightly more than popsicle sticks and chewing gum.

The best in cab remote is the one that re-uses the plug that comes on the winch remote. Remove and record the wiring pin out on the switch end. Plug the other end into the winch. Route it through the engine compartment to the dash location of your choice, mount and hook up the switch.

If you want an arm switch, break the ground side and run it through a simple On Off switch with a guard on it.

That way you never have to delve into the solenoid wiring, it takes no skill or understanding of wiring and if you want to use a remote from outside the rig, simply unplug the dash mounted version and plug in the remote.

That isn't a bad idea. I just like the clean integrated look and don't mind figuring out the wiring. It wasn't hard at all but I enjoy this so it may be more difficult for someone else.

I wanted an in dash winch control with an arm switch (and flashing arm light) so I did this (I installed it there so that it could be used while standing outside the Jeep):



Added a harness plug at the winch for the dash control that allowed the original Warn remote harness hook-up plug to remain in place:



And added switch on the front of the winch (with flashing arm light powered from the dash arm switch) for respooling the winch line:




I haven't used the Warn control harness after installing this setup, its been stored in one of my tool bags for over 8 years without use...

Looks like a smiley face on the front of your winch

Nice. Mine has an arm switch as well and the upper light will be the arm light. I like the flash idea. Can't integrate that into mine unfortunately, unless I used another separate light. I had thought about integrating one into the cluster somehow.

I've been told that a time or two:



I just tell them that I have a happy Jeep.

I made that cover from a mud flap to keep dirt and mud (mud = dum) off my winch line...
