Blonde moment here... How do you mount the solenoid on top of the winch? All I have is a L-shaped bracket. I can see how it looks installed on the box, I know how to connect the wires, it looks simple enough - I just can't find the instructions (even on the web) for this. Nothing lines up it seems. Pics attached.

I don't know but it looks to me like the two bolts on the solenoid box would line up with the two slots. It also looks like the bent tab single hole would then line up with one of the bolts that holds the two ends of the winch together through those long rods no? I can't tell if the bracket you're holding in the pic is one piece or two. If it's one then maybe I'm on to something close to how it goes, otherwise I'm out of ideas without seeing more.
For some, it is easier to kill the light inside of themselves than it is to fight the darkness all around them.
careful when you tighten it up as the threads in the round support rods are soft and will strip out easily. I don't think they are deep enough so when you add the width of the bracket only a few threads grab.
I had the same problem when I bought mine to install. The Warn installation guid really suck. I couldn't figure out how to mount the darn thing. Nothing in the manual explains it. I had to look at the picture on the box and just figure it out by trial and error with the metal bracket. It is the weakest link on the winch.
I am more worried about taking it off on the trails... or someone backing into it in the parking lot... Just need to take some time and figure it out, kinda low priority now because I have a good bit of other work to do with the Jeep.
