HF Alum Bumper Winch Install Planning
So I finally picked up a Smittybilt XRC 9.5 COMP winch for my Hefty Fabworks Aluminum bumper. I'm planning the install and just wanted to make sure I had everything correct after searching the forums.
1. I will have to trim the Grill (2014 X).
2. After looking at HF's install instructions, it said I will probably need to clock the clutch side so I can activate the switch. I'm assuming I can do this forward (front facing) without having to worry about road garbage (water, salt, ice, etc.) contaminating anything.
3. Relocating control box above fuse box. Three 6 foot 2 Gauge Battery Cables to extend with 3/8 lugs? I assume also extending the thin negative wire to the winch as well? Or can I just run it straight the battery and do the same with the negative from the winch?
Anything you can think of would be appreciated. I'm sure I'll eventually set up a wireless remote.
