    Finally finished 2nd battery and AXON winch install! I could not have done this without the information and help on this forum. Thank you! I've posted some aspects of the battery install on other threads. I went with the AXON since its contactor is integrated within the winch, which would leave me more room under the 700 hood. I wanted room to possibly add a fuse block and stinger later for other accessories.

    Nice,
    Did you happen to take any more picture of the AXON? Yours is the first we have seen.

    Thanks. No, I didn't. I'll see if I can take some more of it installed. I will say that I was impressed with the clean/simple design. There was only one lead with a plug for a simple harness (included) that connected to the in/out switch and plug for remote; and then just two posts for battery cable lugs. The clutch design patterned after an old hub was a flashback for when I used to get out of the truck to lock the hubs :). But is surprisingly simple and easy to use. The blue light on the switch turns green when winch is running, and is supposed to turn yellow, then orange, then red based on status of winch/battery. Not very clear in documentation so I will have to see how that works in practice. My only concern is how durable the integrated contactor will be. Time will tell but the advertisement is true, it dramatically reduced install time.

    I see your winch is turned backward like the factory kit. Which way did you wind the cable? Do the Warn docs tell you a specific direction?

    edit: I see now that you went the expected direction (exits the drum off the "bottom/front", which is the top/front in this case". The Honda-Warn winch is turned but still sits mostly upright, with a remote that has it wind in/out backward from the Warn docs.

    Yes, I think I agree with everything you said! The documentation specifies the direction it's wound--Out the "bottom" which when mounted as I did, and as you said, is now the top. Agreed on switches too. I thought that was me loosing my mind when they worked opposite what I expected--I can live with it though. Documentation does not show button function.
