Solenoid

Warn includes this solenoid in the kit, and while it looks like an old Ford starter solenoid, they assure me it isn’t. The old Ford starter solenoids aren’t rated for constant-duty usage, and if you try to use one instead of this solenoid, Warn tells me that you will fry it pretty quickly. The solenoid is included so that you don’t have constant power going to the bumpers of your Jeep. Can you imagine some kid sticking his fingers in the connector? Talk about shocking. Note the plastic feet on the solenoid; it needs to be isolated from the chassis ground.
