    Like the subject says...

    I installed mine to the left of the battery. Made a bracket for the battery to sit on, used a sheet metal break for the bends and the solenoids sit to the left of it.

    So far, it stays dry and all of the cableing has not rubbed on anything to wear through the sheathing or crinkle type housing I wrapped the entire 'loom' in.

    Just wondering.

    Later.

    I mounted mine between the passenger head light and radiator. My thought was to keep it close to the winch. Made a simple bracket out of angle iron. The zip tie is gone and there to help hold it while I measured for the mount.

    Ran the power wire under the plastic radiator cover.

    Nice job.
