Sorry to all if i am being redundant here, but i have searched and searched the threads and being New to this forum, i may be searching the wrong way.

i have my winch mounted,just need specifics on wiring it now, the best way and cleanest install , remembering i only have 7 hours to this point on this machine so i haven't ever taken apart or really had time to look it all over for dis-assembly.

Any info , videos,pics will be GREATLY appreciated.

it is a 3000 lb Bad Land winch if this helps in providing correct data.

Its actually really easy. Remove the front bumper, mount your winch plate and winch. Reinstall bumper. Mount your solenoid. Run your power wires to the battery and terminate. Plug the factory prewire up to your solenoid. Plug your rocker switch into the prewire behind the dash and your good yo go!

Absolutely, i will post any and all info i have once wired up, i plan to really test it hard while in civilization to make sure it will hold up once out in the trails... :)

since i paid only $50 with coupon i added a $19 2 year warranty on it so i can get it replaced up to 2 years for free.

I mounted mine under the hood. There is a plastic area in the front that it fits perfectly. Mine is a warn though. Can't speak for your winch.
