I remember installing my friends q9000 winch on his JKU, and the wiring was barely long enough, and required questionable routing. I want to route it my way, and for that to happen, I will need to extend the wires. Just wondering what gauge wire is winch wire? If memory serves, it looked like 4 gauge.

IMO, at a minimum it should be 2 ga.

2 ga, not 2/0 ga. 2/0 is much thicker.

I went to Advance Auto and picked up some "bulk" battery cable. It was 2/0. Price was VERY reasonable. It was copper cable with clear coating.

I wanted to remote mount my control box under the hood. I think it took about 30ft. Cleaned up the front end and works great. Note the black loomed cables next to the air box.... that is the cable.

Few pics...

Thanks. I think those Warn cables will serve my purpose. I like their plug in jumper cables as well. Seems like it is worth the ease of use. Thanks!
