Custom winch wiring

Thought you guys might be interested.

I just finished making a front reciever mount and wiring for a winch on my f350.

I used CAT booster connectors (I'm an HD mechanic and have easy access to this stuff) for the wiring, 2/0 cable and a Cole Herssee Battery selector switch (had it lying around) to shut off power to the front of the truck....Dont want live wires at the bumper if I were to get in an accident (knock on wood).

The battery selector will give me the ability to send power either to the front of the truck, back of the truck (I haven't wired from the switch to the rear of the truck yet), both, or shut off the power all together. It's rated for 300amps continuous and 500 intermittent, the cole hersee specs say these are "conservative" ratings.

I buy repair and sell broken machines as a bit of side work, so moving them dead is a challlenge. I've built a receiver mount on my trailer as well, and will be able to power the winch while mounted on the trailer from the back of the truck.

The only thing unfortunate about this all is that I had to remove my fog lights....will figure out how to remount them eventually.
