Power interrupt on winch

Does anybody install a power interrupt on their winch? This is something that the guys at sPOD recommended. They said that you can install the interrupt switch to the sPOD to be able to switch the power on/off to the winch, but not to hook up the winch or the winch controls direct to the sPOD. I guess this add some protection against electrical related disasters?

You want this:

WARN 62132 - WARN Power Interrupt Kit - Quadratec

And there's an install guide here:

Warn Winch Power Interrupt Kit w/sPOD install - JKowners.com : Jeep Wrangler JK Forum

Let me know how it goes I've been considering doing the same with mine.

It doesn't give a rating on that relay? Anyone know what it is? Usually they are 200 amp or lower and my winch pulls more than that.

There's already a relay in the winch. I would prefer a mechnical disconnect as this appears to add several layers of complexity that could fail.

Thanks joe002, the last thing you want is for your relay to kick out in the middle of a hard pull.
