|ptoncannon||On this bumper I'm building, I need to mount my winch on it, but the frame rails are covered by those boxes i put in yesterday and I posted pics yesterday... The steel is 3/16th inch thick and is mounted very sturdily to the frame. If I were to just mount the winch directly to the bumper, in between the 2 boxes just inside the frame rails would the metal hold up? I was thinking it would just act like a winch plate since it's 3/16th inch but just need to get a second opinion.|

Made some progress on my stinger build today!! Got it fully mounted today and put these boxes on the side for stylistic purposes and to mount the support bar on. Will finish boxing these in tomorrow morning but I'm really liking the way it's turning out.
I think we will put the support bar on next, which we will make out of rectangular tubing and then the stinger will be after that. I just can't wait to finish it!

Decided to upgrade the speakers in the soundbar. Threw in some fiber fill from a pillow I had bought for another speaker project. Sounds pretty good.

So don't use a Volvo COS? Use one that goes in the cable...
Simple, removable key and it works great!

|Sinister6||^^^^ it's a simple battery cutoff switch, why wouldn't it fit/work?|

Regarding the traffic in this thread about battery terminals and connectors, I recently purchased one of these for my old Volvo.
The RWD 700 and 900 series cars from the 1980s and 1990s have a problem with servos for the auto door locks sticking in the locked position when you lock the doors. The worn servo (which is a true PITA to get to and service) will sit there all night keeping that plunger (that normally retracts after the doors lock) in the extended position. This drains your battery.
These same cars have issues with the dome lights draining the battery as well, like with the TJs problem with the melted stub in the fog light switch on the back of the Multifunction Switch, causing the fogs to come on when you have them turned off, sometimes staying on all night and draining your battery. The Volvos suffer from the dome lights turning on and staying on until you open and re-close the door. Eventually you have to remove the dome light or replace it. They, like all Volvo parts, are very expensive.
For owners of old 700/900 series Volvos this electrical crap gets expensive and is really difficult to fix. So a Volvo specialty company (sort of the Volvo version of Quadratec) sells these nifty battery disconnects. If you plan on not driving your 740 for a few days and it has been draining your battery, you simply turn the knob when you park the car. It cuts off the battery so it cannot be drained. After a week or whatever, you decide to take the old brick for a spin, twist the knob and you have a ore or less fresh battery. (This does not always do the trick if it is really hot outside - like 105║ or so - as that alone can drain your battery if you do not start the vehicle every day.)
I will try this out on my old 1990 brick and see how sturdy it is. If it is good I will get another one for my TJ. I think it would be a fair security measure. A kill switch is something that a crook looks for, if they are experienced. A hidden kill switch (or a magnetic one like I had on another TJ) makes it much harder for the scumbag to figure out.
The main way to defeat the scumbags (short of shooting them - lol) is to delay them. They do not want to risk being caught, so anything you can do to slow them down is a good thing. If you can make them confused enough they will usually go away. (This is not the case in a darkened backyard car port when no one is home, but works well in parking lots or in front of a house. Guys who strike in those locations like to be gone as quickly as possible, and if that means your car or possible incarceration they usually cuss you out and walk. I have watched four security camera videos of my TJ being gone through by scumbags and them walking away after less than five minutes because they could not get any juice. Not one of them decided to pop the unlocked, easy access hood we all have. Not one. (Further, I am betting that most of them could not have driven off my 5 speed anyway, once they realized it had that weird third pedal, heh, heh, heh... Manual trannys are a sort of security, too.)
Anyway, I am hoping that this gizmo will allow me some options regarding my battery. What with my constantly screwing with the battery to clear codes and whatever, being able to work on the rig and not have to manually remove the negative wire every time will be a boon for me. If it aids in security or battery long-term storage life in the process, even better.
I do not know if I can even get this to fit my TJ. But again, if it works and turns out to be sturdy enough I will post back about it.

And as for how well they sit on there. They fit well for me! I haven't had any issue of it not fitting tight enough, in fact i had a problem with it being TOO TIGHT and went through hell to get it undone! Haha, I would highly recommend this if you need them replaced

Solved my cooling issues with a bigger fan....so this is kinda a moot point.....but it would have worked well....and who knows....I may put it in at a later date. Will paint black.
