    this is why I have my winch power running through a disconnect. No key in ignition and switch flipped, no power.

    Whered you end up mounting the switch? I have a switch I can use just never installed it. Winch has been on the truck now like 3 years first time this happened. Quite crazy. It bent the recovery point itself. Its obvious it bent the plate no problem. Im just mad I now don’t have a winch unless I tie a bowline in the end in an emergency but the fid should be here saturday and Ill splice it back together.

    Yep.

    This is the disconnect switch I used. Mounted in the engine bay, just forward of the battery.

    Isn't there a story/post somewhere of an FJ that burned to the ground in the owners driveway from a short. The winch engaged itself and tried to draw the line in till the winch itself overheated and started a fire. The way I see it your lucky the line snapped. And kinda amazing it did given the breaking strength of the line and how much force was applied to do so.. I’d be happy you still have a truck

    And you don’t need a fast fid to splice the line, it just makes it easier.
    @JLink claims it’s fine with electrical tape.

    Seems like a bad idea, what if you’re stuck and that solenoid takes a shit? I’ll take my chances with rekt bumpers and truck fires thank you:cookiemonster::cookiemonster::cookiemonster:

    I have the same one. Peace of mind that there’s no power going to the winch unless I flip the switch. I mounted it in the bumper next to the winch free spool selector.




    And like Chux said, I don’t use a fid. Piece of solid strand wire or a wire coat hanger and electrical tape works fine. Or even a stick.

    The nice part of this is that it's a manual connection.

    The nice part about this is that you can literally mount the switch anywhere, like in the cab like Jay, Steve and I have.

    Thanks gents. Ill probably mount the switch out of the elements in the engine bay. Im glad my truck didn’t burn up and still have no clue how it broke. Maybe there was a cut in the winch line. Or a weak point. Ive winched with it a few times and used it for other stuff never hooked to the line and always used tree saver straps. Ill take a bent bumper over a burned down truck any day thats for damn sure

    2021 me says thats a pricey 90 bracket...

    2013 me says is there a group buy?


    This was my first thought and theory when I saw where the line snapped. Also the reason I had a flat link for a bit and then got the rope guard when it came out..

    Anyone could spend $10 at Home Depot and have something that will work.
    The difference is, that kit looks nice.

    Haha, I hear you. That bracket wouldn’t work for me anyway with the dual battery setup, but I would install something similar on my passenger side where the winch control box is.

    Finally started building a drawer system for the bed of my truck. I’ve wanted to do it for years. Thanks to @diabetiktaco for selling me the fridge slide and giving me the reason to get started. Should have the baseplate and fridge slide installed within a few days. Drawer will be a little while. 50” locking full extension drawer slides are on their way though.
