Right, I also keep the controller locked in the trunk so someone would have to have a controller to do anything. 1) that's noisy which will cause attention. 2) someone can still mess around with the clutch and still take the cable and hook if they really wanted. But that would be time consuming and noticeable.

I think it's personal preference to put a switch.

I plan on doing a similar setup when I put a winch on my JK.
I believe he means a disconnect on the primary wires near the battery.

Start a thread and ask this question. That way you get a bigger audience and you'll get different answers on pro/cons of both set ups. It could answer your question and maybe help you out if it's something you would like to do.

Man sorry to hear that I would be PISSED.. I know accidents happen though, hopefully your Jeep gets returned to its original state or better.

The LOD relocation kit puts it under the radiator basically. That's a good kit too. But have to do that while the bumper is off.

That's to bad. I got a aev bumper and aev winch plate and it relocate the pump at the same position just little more out of the way so I didn't had any issue with my spod. I got the air gauge as well cause I also have two arb locker and....not so practical lol. Im thinking of replacing it with another digital multi function gauge. I can ear my compressor running and I know it stop at a certain psi so...what's the point of the gauge. When the comp stop, switch lockers on.
