Badland Winch Parts Wiring Diagram

Wiring a winch is often a fearful task. It is relatively easy and manageable with the Badland Winches. Most of the Badland winches carry the same ideal wiring pattern.

Regarding the condition, we have added all the Badland winch wiring diagrams for the models of 2500, ZXR 2500, 3500, ZXR 5000, ZXR 9500, ZXR 12000, APEX 12000, and 18000 lb winches from Harbor Freight.

Precautions To Take Before Wiring:

As you begin the wiring process, make sure you will not route the cables through an area where there is a possibility of damage or interference with their proper functioning.

Make a secure path for the cable routing away from moving parts and encounters from road debris.

Do not route the cables through a driveshaft, fuel line, or any other place where heat can damage the wiring.

Any holes made in any part of the vehicle or hardware must be fitted with rubber grommets to prevent the wire’s fraying.

Always examine the working conditions of your winch before using it on the trail.

Safety Precautions: Take extra caution in every winching situation. Please familiarize yourself with the operation of your winch before using it. Keeping a constant focus is more critical. Always wear heavy-duty leather gloves when handling the winch.

We have included manuals for all the Badland winch, which holds all necessary instructions to wire up the solenoid, remote, and winch. Follow the instructions thoroughly for making your winch install as easy as possible.
