In-Cab Winch Controls with Contura Switches Installed in 05 X

I managed to get Contura Switches into the factory switch bezel on my 05. You have to trim the top retaining tab so that only 1/4" is left and the switches go right in. I did not wire the main lights on them because I found them rather bright and annoying. I did wire the lower lights and made it so that the lights on the winch in/out button only come on when the arm switch is on. I got the switches from www.otrattw.com



The winch control hookup was super easy. The Superwinch EPi 9.0 only needs two wires to control it from in the cab. When you open up the solenoid housing you attach one wire to the blue wire and one to the yellow.

Turned out pretty sweet.

wow, I like that a lot too.... I don't know how well I could take on this job (I tend to make things harder than they are) but that would certainly be an awesome mod to have.

And one with the winch armed. I made it so that the light on the in/out button only comes on when the winch is armed.
