With years of experience installing winches, we are always faced with the same question- How do I get power to the winch that is mounted on the trailer or trailer hitch mount?
Unfortunately, the power supplied by the vehicles 7 or 5 pin trailer plug harness is not nearly enough amperage, so you must run new 2+ gauge wire (positive & negative), or install a separate battery to power the winch. Solve your problem in 1 shot and use a Tuff Stuff® Winch wiring kit.
The Tuff Stuff® Winch Wiring Kit provides enough cable/quick disconnectors to power to the front & rear of the vehicle.
Tuff Stuff® includes 22′ of positive/negative cable with a quick disconnect plug + a 3′ positive/negative for the front + a 3′ positive/negative to re-wire the winch making it 100% portable and usable at both ends of the vehicle, if mounted to a hitch, mounted winch mount.
Made from heavy-duty copper 2 gauge (SWG) wire & heavy-duty insulation, our permanent wiring kit is made to transfer up to 500 amps safely and effectively to any winch (Some quick connectors are not compatible with Tuff Stuff® connectors please call for details)
Wiring Quick Dis-Connect Kit Includes:
- 3′ OF 2 GAUGE POSITIVE/NEGATIVE WIRES WITH QUICK CONNECT & RING TERMINALS (PERMANENTLY WIRED TO WINCH)
- 22′ OF 2 GAUGE POSITIVE/NEGATIVE WIRES WITH QUICK CONNECT & RING TERMINALS (POWER FROM BATTERY TO REAR)
- 3′ OR 2 GAUGE POSITIVE/NEGATIVE WIRES WITH QUICK CONNECT & RING TERMINALS (POWER TO FRONT)
