    Anyone know where I can get a 2 wire male/female rubber connector.

    I wired up a salt spreader suing 8ga wire and have it spliced at the rear bumper so it can be removed during the off season. Each year I have to cut and recrimp new connectors on. On top of that, every once in a while the connector(s) come lose from connecting & disconnecting them that they have to also be replaced.

    I'd like to put something a little more permanent, and durable. Something like the connectors on the plow and or lights. Waterproof.

    Ive tried searching google, and various electronic parts pages but cant seem to find anything.

    Any ideas where I can get something that will fit the order?

    You could use a trailer connector. Thats what I did for my aux backup lights.....I connected one end to my lights, and the other end to the supply on my truck.....I've never had a problem with it, and its waterproof.

    Try a winch plug. Available at Boat stores or four wheel drive shops. High amp, positive connection, not super expensive.
