The previous winch wiring article created a switch panel and a wiring loom that runs through to under the bonnet.
Now the winch equipment needs installing under the bonnet.

So having got the wiring looms in, the next stage is to add in the winch wiring. I want to put a remote switch in the dash board, a second battery in the boot and the winch solenoids under the bonnet.
The winch controls will go into the dashboard. There is a handy pocket in the radio/clock mounting frame (shown with a piece of white card inserted) that will take a switch module.

A common problem with a lifted Jimny is "Jimny Lean". This is where it appears to sag on the driver side. The original manufacturers springs are stiffer on the drivers side but most lift kits do not cater for this.
One simple answer is to put a spring spacer in on the drivers side. These are available from "Bits4Vits" in the UK. Here are some pictures of mine.
As can be seen in the problems section, the Jimny wiring needs some serious attention - see Wiring!
A whole series of accessories have been fitted and the wiring for these needs to be rationalised and tidied up. In many places domestic mains cable has been used and lies loose on the floor.
