This kit relocates your Winch Control Box (That very important little black box bolted to the top of your winch) into the engine bay of your truck. This has multiple advantages. Firstly - this makes plugging in your winch controller very easy and safe. Simply pop your hood and plug it in. Secondly - the control box is the least waterproof and most likely part to cause your winch to fail. Moving it to the top of the engine bay keeps the contactors and electrical connections away from submersion in water, mud and road grime.
The kit contains an 18” power cable, a universal mounting bracket, as well as custom length winch power cables that are color coded to match the factory SMITTYBILT X20 for ease of installation.
Using a piece of rope, route where you want to mount your control box in your engine bay (within 1.5 feet of your battery) down to the electrical terminals on your SMITTYBILT X20. Measure the length of this rope to determine what length you require for your kit. Make sure you give yourself enough slack, its better to be a bit too long than too short.
All kits are hand cut and crimped to order with North American Sourced Cables and Connectors. Better than OEM.
Please see the installation video below for directions. Note: this video was performed for the 13-18 RAM 1500 Kit and with a Warn VR EVO. It will vary for different models and for the Smittybilt winch but follow a similar procedure.
Easy install! Works flawlessly! Thanks for speedy shipping
