So i had some time to finally install some parts. I built a custom winch mount using some steel square tubing. I welded them together on the top and bottom and then notched a little section out for them to fit over the bumper support bolts. I have a steel plate on the bottom. I bought a harbor freight 2500 pound winch with the wireless controller And winch plate. Im going to grab the snatch block so i have 5000 lbs of recovery capacity. The roof i just received. I ordered it from ebay. Its not as durable as i would have liked but its not bad for 130 dollars. Next i have to do my snorkle. Have the stuff just ran out of time. I also have all my radio stuff i have to install.
Is that the Moose Mud roof or another make? How do you think it will hold up on the trail? Looks nice
I am waiting on my KFI winch to be delivered today. I am confident of being able to mechanically mount the winch; however, I am concerned with the electrical connections. Is a winch difficult to wire on a Pioneer 500?
I have the same roof & I've smacked it around several times. It's still holding up good.
Thats the moose roof. Its holding up, i cut black foam to go between the roof and frame due to rattling. The winch is really easy to install. Power and ground pretty much 4 wires. 2 for the winch 2 for the battery. Then if you have a switch for in and out.
I recently installed a KFI winch on my Pioneer. I ran the wires to the battery down the passenger side fenderwell and attached them to the frame with wire ties. This looks fairly good; however, is there a better routing of the cables other than the routing I used? I want to prevent them from snagging on something and being ripped out.
I just installed the Honda\Warn and per instructions ran the cables along the frame with the main harness. Tied cables to main harness back to battery area. Needed to remove skid plate., floor, seats, etc.
