I built a custom bumper for my 2000 f250 (see fabrication forum) and waiting for it to get LineX'ed. I am currently trying to figure out the best way to wire my setup.
I will be running a portable winch for two reasons 1. I will rarely use it 2. I want to be able to use it in the front and the rear. That said, I will have quick connects on both the front and rear bumper. I had Riffraff make my f650 dash and have a switch for "front winch" and "rear winch." I plan on running two continous duty solenoids(one for each bumper) so i dont have power going to the bumpers all the time.
I also have two- Piaa 520's and two-Piaa 510 lights for the bumper.
So what I need to do, is get all this stuff hooked up to the batteries! I currently have a 4 ga wire for my sound system and power wire for my Performax gauges.
I need to hook the following up to the batteries
All of this obviously wont fit onto one battery. I am considering taking of the OE passanger terminal and putting on one of these
Positive Battery Terminal
IIRC there are 3 wires comming off this terminal, but I would like to run my wire for the winch on this battery. I am thinking of running a 0 ga wire to a distribution block acting as a Y to each solenoid. I would think only having 1 solenoid open at one time should give suffecient juice??
On the drivers battery I will run the same terminal, but run a 0ga wire to one of these
2 Way Distribution System
Distributing my sound system wire, light wires, and gauge wires.
I have a newer alternator, but will be looking at a 200 amp in the future.
I am obviously no electronic guru so ANY suggestions or input will be greatly appreciated!
