The winch installed!!!

I'm sure most of you have your winch installed by now. But here is a few pics of placement of switches/remote control hook up and a hockey puck for a winch stop. Also my 4 year old daughter figured I should have a horn on my pioneer so she "lent" the one off her bike.

Looking good Jack!
I like the location of the switch, looks real clean there.

The color of the handle is a dead give away its not your horn!

Flapless Jack.... There has to be a story behind that name, but I can't imagine what it is?

What size winch is that? I'm trying to decide between the Warn vantage 4000 and the pro vantage 3500

I'm glad you like the pictures/location of the switch. The hardest part was putting the first hole in the dash!

Cavscout I went with the Vantage 4000. I was contemplating the same thing you are. The only thing I question is the braking system on the Vantage 4000 compared to the disk brake on the Pro Vantage. But then again I don't plan on hanging my P4 from a tree!

Dick, I wish I had a better story for you about my user name. I joined an Aviation forum years ago and I picked an aviation name that was unique. It's kinda stuck over the years.

Thanks for setting me straight on your user name, I was thinking more along the line of you didn't like pancakes or you had hemorrhoid surgery.

Looks great. I've looked at the Pro and Vantage. I wondered if it'd work with Hondas switch plate?
