The kit even includes an illuminated switch with a mount to put inside the Jeep and the wiring harness to hook it up with. The included harness has an inline-glass fuse installed in it. The instructions told me to hook the red wire to a switched positive, but I ignored them and hooked it to constant power just in case the winch needs to be used with the Jeep off or stalled. The kit is rated for 175 amps, and like I said, I wanted to use the connector for jumper cables as well. I was worried that jumping a dead Jeep would fry the solenoid—but so far, so good.
