Looking for those in a 2 gauge. I don't think 4 is enough on a 8k winch?

What are they called so I don't have to pay Warns prices...

I see those on fork truck battery chargers all the time. I bet they are in grainger or at any real electrical supply place.

You can buy them at napa, probobly any autoparts store in the snowplow stuff.
I personally wont use them on a winch because it only takes a bad connection a few seconds to create enough heat to ruin your winch motor. Ask me how I know.

Its for a receiver mounted winch, so it has to have a connector of some sort. I want to be able to move it between the rear of the cj and yj.

I will see what price Napa has, they were pricey at Grainger, if I buy them there I might as well buy the kit.

Thanks guys!

This. The other quick connects are not rated for that amperage. Bdd is correct on the quick heat from the ones rated for charging batteries. Keep em lubricated, at least put the female ones on the winch do you can keep mud /water out of the connectors.

I would put a female on the pos and male on the neg on the truck and the opposite on the winch. That way you can't mix em up.

That would work too. I think you can get different colors to remedy that as well.

How are the connectors rated that you say aren't big enough? Continuous or peak? If it's peak, what's the rating for time? On the McMaster one I see it has an amp rating.. it doesn't go into any detail.

I dunno if you looked at the Warn site, but he's basically looking for the same part they sell, but not in the Warn package. I've seen the Warn parts in person, and they aren't any different than what others have posted. Going with the equivalent of what Warn sells seems to be reasonable to me; as I would expect they aren't going to sell something that turns to dust the first time you use it on a hard pull.

As for peak amp draw on an 8274.. have you checked the peak amperage to what the factory wiring is? I'm pretty sure they use 2-gauge on 8274 if that helps you find the answer...

I did just look at them on McMaster, they make ones rated up to 350A, assuming peak.

The quality of the connection is what worries me. I feel that welding cables have a much better connection than these plugs...

Do whatever you want, it's your rig.

I'd rather be safe than sorry.

That was my point. It's all an assumption.

As far as safety, I've seen a set of those cables on most every wrecker, and I'm sure they get plenty of connect/disconnect cycles. Proper care goes a long way.
