Can you trim up the cables? Seems like there will be a ton of extra cable to deal with. I will have to install an XT25 winch next week.

You can, you will need to buy new cable ends from somewhere like Napa.

Thanks for sharing the video!

I put mine in that same area, but screwed it into the bottom of the box and sealed screw holes with silicone caulk. Looks like you have something in that place already...Maybe you have EPS? Mine was empty in that area, so the solenoid fit right in. For cable routing, I used the existing opening just forward of the two holes you drilled (visible at about 1:06 in the video). Also sealed that hole up with silicone caulk after wires were all in place.

i put my contactor in the same place on my non/ps bike but on this new bike i just put it on the winch mount it water proof so it wont hurt a thing

as you said in the vid there will be two nuts with the wire in between on the winch bolt always be sure to hold the bottom nut with a wrench while tightening the top nut as the bolt will turn and could break off the wire attached inside the winch

Nice job on the install. I don't remember adding a new bolt to my install though. What purpose does it have (the new bolt)?

He said bolt but meant nut, there should be a nut already on the posts, you then put the ring lug over that and then put the washer and the second nut on. Like said in post #7, Make sure to hold the first nut with a wrench when you tighten the second nut or you could spin the bolt/lug and break the wire off inside the winch motor.

I thought it looked to be fairly water proof also but I am curious, do you know for sure or just think so based on the way it is constructed?
The Warn mount plate instructions say to put the contactor on the back of the mount and comes with the holes already drilled so I was considering doing just that if not up where the OP video shows.
