I couldn't really find a good way to post this, so I just put it in a PDF format and attached the file. At least that way, you should be able to print it or share with others.

Just wanted to say THANKS for posting this tutorial. I was about ready to take my winch back after trying to figure out how to get it installed.

This is a huge help!

That is a clean install, good job. If it make s a difference to anyone running in lots of water and mud, I switched my blue/yellow and black/red cables around and mounted the contactor and control box for the wireless remote up under the hood to keep them out of the water. Also with the contactor under the hood it gives you a power source under the hood for other accessories without routing wires all the way down to the battery.

Yes thank you for the tutorial. I purchased a 5000 lb Viper Max for my 2010 Teryx. I mounted the contactor under the hood on the "fire wall" and it looks and works great.

Thanks for the Install Insrtuctions

I followed your instructions to a successful install. I mounted the remote connector in the dash and was able to tap into the hot lead to the accessory plug in. The job definitely took way longer than expected but w/o your instructions it would have taken way longer.

A better way to mount a winch is to buy a well built very strong bumper that the winch mounts on top of. This keeps it up out of mud and water, unless you are one that never sees mud or water.

The 2011 has the wiring harness relocated. You may want to follow the new routing as the old way the drivers side floor plastic edge (unless you ground it down) could cut into the wires if you had to many going through there.

cepennington - Did you weld the two pad eyes to the KFI fairlead bracket? I was trying to compare your pictures on your PDF document of both pieces to the pictures on KFI website and didn't see how the clevises could attach the way you show in that position. I really like the addition of those clevisis and Im currently looking to add a winch to my 2010 Teryx LE (2 seater).
