FULL Superwinch LT 2000 Install (Pics+Vid)

***Can a MOD please remove my ORIGINAL POST about the install, this is the full version.***

So i bought a Superwinch LT2000 a week or so ago. Started installing it this afternoon. I could have hooked up the whole thing today but I am going to do it over a couple days due to time constraints.

Here we go...

First off the install instructions SUCK.

I bolted on the fairlead and winch to the mounting bracket. (Was working on the dinning room table, enjoy the table cover LOL )



Then i took it out into the garage and removed the skid plate on the front of the foreman. I did this so i can get my hands in there easier. I unbolted the bumper from the frame and set the bracket into place. I first bolted on the top portion with the clamps.





After setting the bracket and winch in place this is what it looks like.




Now here comes the fun part...wiring it all together

I decided i had no where to mount this big ol solenoid so i put it in the back gear box.



After putting it in the back box i drilled out a hole in the back of the box and in the space under the seat so i can run the wires to the battery. The hole that was in the back wall of the box was 1inch and the hole in under the seat is 1/2 inch. I used rubber grommets to line the holes to keep water out. I always sealed the grommets with silicon.




I then ran the wires that mount to the winch long the frame of the bike.



After i mounted the wires to the winch motor and zip tied all the wires along the frame i took apart the ignition so that i can hook the winch switch to the ignition switch. This involved splicing the ignition wire about 5 inches from where it is molded in place. I wrapped the wires up with electrical tape.



Ignition wire


Switch



Then i went back into the box and fed the switch wires through the grommet and connected them to the solenoid. I mounted the solenoid to the side of the box out of the way. I mounted it with Liquid Nails at first then i changed my mine and screwed it into the side.



All holes that were made today were sealed with silicon.

Here is the finished product!



Overall it wasnt too much of a pain. The instructions were horrendous, i would have paid an extra $50 for more detailed instructions.

Hope this helps anyone with this winch or thinking about getting this winch

Hmm, Ill make a sticky outta this one. Thanks for the pics and vid...... A lil off topic here but I was watchin your other vids, hows the trigger pull on the LCR. My buddies lookin for a back up duty weapon and I suggested one of these just because its won several awards "gun of the year" however I have not shot one yet.

The LCR is an awesome gun. Trigger pull is near perfect. Very smooth with no hanging up before pin hits primer. The trigger pull is what sold me on this gun honestly. Mine is the 38+p model. They now carry a 357 model as well. After shooting my lcr I found u can shoot 100+ rounds with no sore palm. I recommend it.

Sounds good. I just brought that up to my buddy this week. We'll probably go look at'm when he gets an off day. I only own a few wheel guns, one being a model 85. Its a pretty good shooter and the trigger pull is tough when going D/A, but when you c0ck it theres not one bit of creep and its very crisp. But I wont let him carry a taurus haha. Im a gun nut where he is not. He was planning on carrying some kind of taurus .40 and I said ohh no no no. So now that I talked some sense into him he built his rig around the glock22. I see you also have an XD, very nice gun. I carry the .45 and after my ol man had his Ruger p345 stolen from his truck I made him go out and get the XDM .45. Ive only shot it a few times but its not gonna make me go and trade mine in on one.

I love my XD man. I have almost 1700 rounds through it and not one problem LOL

When i carry in PA or Ohio (since its not possible here in good ol NJ) i normally will carry my Sig or the LCR. But the last time i was in PA a couple weeks ago i was packin the XD and ill tell ya what, i had it in my blackhawk holster under my hoodie..never knew it was there. That holster is just amazing

I carry mine in an HBE leatherworks holester. The guy just has a small business but does some excelent work. I found him on a forum and I was actually the first XD45 holester he made. When Im in dress clothes or feel like completely hiding my pistol I opt for my NAA blackwidow .22mag..... I can hide that thing anywhere

Why did you tie into the ignition wire, so that the winch does not have power all the time?
