Trapshooter Here's mine..........

Went through the whole thing a few years back even though it really didn't need it. Love the 150' line and continuous duty. Try to find that on any of these winches you find today!

80cj Here's mine. Same as everybody else's but I drilled extra holes in the mount plates to install tow hooks. Nice and sturdy and any pulling force on the hooks is directed to the frame rails.

I like it, but I sure don't like those wires up against that grill. (Maybe it is just me.)

This is the only picture that I can find of mine, you can see the cables going through the grill but protected by black hose.

Another good reason for those I have read is if for some odd reason the winch comes off the vehicle, it comes apart there instead of taking the battery with it.



Personally, I am going to use those so that I can easily swap from the 8274 to the SRC8 for winter time. The SRC8 fits under the plow lift perfectly, the 8274 would be in the way. Plus, this would keep the Warn out of the salt spray of winter roads.

Yep. I went from Battery, wire tied pos and neg (along with my electric fan wires) to the radiator support arm and then dropped it through my passenger side air intake. Ran in between my radiator and grill coming out the middle slat.

I'm not sure what others have done but I fed both positive and negative wires through black garden hose in order to protect from rubbing. Ran the hose from winch all the way up the support strut. Worked out very slick/clean.

Cant remember if I have 2/0 or 1/0. I do suggest you go to your local welding supply store and buy it. They can sell you the wire by the foot. Much cheaper and much more flexible than wire you get from a parts house.
