    Hi, i was wondering if anyone knew if hooking up a handler bar rocker switch to a chicago 2000 lbs winch would work? i have the old big giant handheld remotes i have to use now and hate it. it makes it harder and takes to long to raise the plow and back up.

    As long as you use a contactor with the rocker switch you should be fine. The rocker switch by itself won't handle the power required by the winch.
