Winch install with KFI mount

Postby brando4905 » Wed Oct 30, 2013 8:01 am

Finally got my winch installed. The KFI mount is super! I put the rocker switch right under the steering wheel. There really isn't a good place for the solenoid, so I removed the tool kit and put it in that hole. I saw a winch installed at the dealer and they put the solenoid under the middle section under seat, seemed WAY to hot an area for it. Directly over exhaust. Under the hood would have been good, but would have needed longer wires than was supplied in kit. Easiest keyed-on wire for me to tap into was the one for the 12v accessary plug under hood. Winch is Superwinch Terra 45.

Also got my hard roof on, I like it way better than the bimini.

Thanks for the pics! Especially the tip on the solenoid. Now, please get it profoundly stuck, and winch it out and let us know how the mount does! :D

Thanks. Just ordered one...

Also got an older new Champion 4500Lb winch off Ebay for $130 + $20 shipping. Now all i need is a Pioneer!

Those bumper tubes connect almost in front of the bracing behind the a-arms. I can't imagine anywhere up front that would be any stronger.

the tubes are very thin and are only spot welded to the frame they are pretty easy to bend the mount might suprise us and be strong enough i really dont know thats why me and bigriver mounted to the vertical frame brace tubes instead the factory honda winch mount also mounts to the vertical tubes

Will a "wide spool" winch fit on this bracket? Seems to be an advantage to pulling power with them.....and also the amount of cable. Not sure if they are worth it? I dont use a winch too often....but if you get stuck in the wild.....more is definately better. Thinking about keeping the capacity up and the price down via cable and wide spool.
