Super Winch surge protector installation

Super Winch surge protector installation and digging out a spot that was bottomed out

I wrapped the plastic bag our license plate came in around the Super Winch negative ground connection and then secured it with a couple strands of galvanized wire. I realize now that dielectric grease may not have been the best choice for corrosion prevention, but it should keep the air out, and if I can remember I'll peel the plastic back a few years from now and check up on the corrosion status.

The positive end requires a surge protector, which was easy to install.

Digging out a small trench where the truck had bottomed out was the hard part. It was pretty well packed in and I didn't want to take a chance of over straining the Super Winch motor on its first day at work.
