At Connector-Tech ALS we specialise in harsh environment connector solutions for 4WD applications. A customer recently brought their Ford Ranger to our sales centre where we added the finishing touches to a stealth Runva Winches winch install using a Front Runner winch plate.
We used cable toughening, boots, heat shrink and Anderson connectors to complete a tidy setup that hides behind the number plate.
PMA nylon braid was used to protect the cabling running from the battery to the isolator switch mounted to the radiator support. This switch was included with the Runva Winch kit.
The braid continues down to the stealth winch location in front of the intercooler on the Ford Ranger. The polyamide material offers high temperature stability which is critical in close proximity to a heat exchanger.
The finished winch install is completely hidden behind the number plate when it is in place. A flip up number plate holder will be the next addition.
