Need help with a part number

    As many of you know, I run a 7'6" MT on my Jeep Wrangler. I also have an 8000lb winch on the front as well.

    Now - I currently have the winch battery cables running to the battery, as well as the plow wiring harness. Here is what i would like to do. I want just the plug and about 1 foot of cable (red/black) that would be the same as my "plow" side of the main power feed to the plow. With that - I am going to wire that to the winch. This way, in the summer, I can plug the plow plug into the winch, and in winter when I put on the plow, I can plug the power into the plow. Then, I would only have 1 fuse and 1 set of wires coming off the battery. Plus, the vehicle side of the plow wiring has that nice web meshing over the cables to protect them.

    So.... anyone know the proper part number for one of those plugs/wires? Basher? I am looking in your general direction... ;)

    This what you're looking for?

    Try radio shack, or a truck equipment supplier.

    We stock them in kits but I don't have the price handy. we use the 175 amp units for most things. If you buy in parts rather then kits remember you need 2 connectors and 4 terminals for one connection

    If You Are Using A Warn Winch Be Careful I Have Found That Some Of The Plugs Wont Fit But The Ones That Basher Found Im Sure Are Cheaper And Im Sure He Has Tested Them With A Warn Power Connector

    I've found it's 50/50 some time it works great other times the Warn part is a better fit in a warn connector then the generic connector. They plug in OK but sometimes they don't lock well.

    I like the spring locking ones for constant use applications

    The connector for my plow is a rubber two prong connector, one male and one female almost like a "pins"

    Its not a plastic locking connector like the one basher showed. I found an MT parts diagram on sno-ways site (they hide that stuff pretty well.... ;) ) and it looks like I want part #96104230

    My winch is a cheap one - it just has heavy duty cables running to the battery (like the plow does). Instead of having 4 huge cables running up to the battery, with 2 fuses, my thought was to cut the winch wiring outside the jeep near the radiator and then just plug the winch into the plow wiring connector.... That was the point of this exercise....

    Basher - can I order up that part from you? Or - do you have any junker snoways laying around you can just cut the power plug off of - I only need about a foot of cable and the plug itself so i can splice it.

    i would just cut the plug off the plow and use the plastic connectors

    Thats a good idea. I just thought I would only have to buy/splice one wire if I ordered the sno-way one... Plus - that connector works really well - even when full of snow....

    you could try a Meyer pump side power harness on the winch. the old style with only one ground. you can probably get one cheap on Ebay

    Or you could use the 96104230

    Never junked a snoway, they just keep pushing snow:D
