Pete,

Looking good. :2thumup:

Would it be to much of a problem to take a shot of the engine compartment to see how you are using those quick disconnects :innocent:

Btw, thanks for the present. :ya:

Here you go!! I was going to put a quick disconnect in, but instead I just put a $5 pair of jumper cable ends on. It was actually Matt's idea to use the jumper cable ends. They make the system portable to any vehicle with a hitch receiver. I figure one day it will come in handy on the trail. The winch also came with a shorter 5' cable that I am going to do the same thing to, when the two cables are hooked together I will have a 25' set of jumper cables. I am going to adjust the orientation the battery connectors, I don't like how close the Hot cable is to the frame.

I dunno about the cables working the winch. I always think in worst case senarios and what would happen if your Jeep came off a rock and bounced, cables come flying off, hitting someone or going down into the slope. Or what's going to happen when the vehicle is partially underwater?

If you want to have removeable cables, then I think the way to go would be the quick connects like the tow trucks have to jump other vehicles. Put one under the hood and another at the winch mount location. Still would have a water issue I think.

Remember this is my backup winch to my Warn. What your saying is my Warn is toast, I am on a rocky slope that is underwater and probably by myself, except for the person that happens to be near the 5' leght of cable between the mirror and the battery so they can get hit by flying cable. At this point, I'll burry the body probably just before the locust swarm and the hail storm and I"ll abandon the Jeep and go and buy a Neon or something. :innocent:

It's not the voltage that will kill ya it's the measured amperage across the heart, think of a stun gun, 100k+ volts...no kill..
A hair dryer in the bathtub, 7amps measured across the heart, dead, a winch will draw what 300amps under load... I don't know the math, but I know as low as a 1 amp across the heart at 110volts and poof yer dead... The voltage plays the major roll..but....
Doesn't anyone watch mybusters? or read? I would think when we play with such high loads and hard core electrical devices that we research the dangers and how to's... :2thumup:
Moral is, that a car battery has more than enough energy to kill many people in a row, so use extreme caution.. especially with a running vehicle and an alternator...

That being said the battery cable thing is not a bad one, :innocent: but just in case it was Pete's idea, really...
