    Hey Mark, did you get around to installing the winch switches on the bar. You can save me some googling time.

    Haven't even got the bar on the Patrol yet mate. The winch in mounted in the bar and the bar is sitting on the ground. I'm going fab up a pulley system from my balcony to winch it up, hopefully the balcony holds it, then do a test fit. As I think the power steering cooler will be in the way still.
    Once its all mounted in then I'll worry about wiring.

    G’day Mr Mark,
    Hope you and the family are well mates!
    This may possibly assist as to what I conjured up for my ute setup.

    https://daviescraig.com.au/product/t...late-hydra-677

    The old unfortunately discontinued Millweld bar (-80mm mount) I found zero chance of allowing the OEM power steering split coolers and lines to stay in place without severely rubbing through one day.

    I was having issues also with our 12.5” wide tyres overheating the fluid under demanding twists etc..

    Thankfully didn’t have to fabricate a single bracket either, simply utilised the OEM cooler brackets in different positions and a bit of bending/tweaking to finally mount the aftermarket cooler behind the High Mount gearbox to the drivers side of radiator.




    Your flash newly painted ARB bar may not require this mate but my PS fluid appeared to appreciate the modification anyhows

    Thanks Mark. I'm also running two thermo's, the second is right where you have your cooler. I think I might have to get inventive soon. Just gotta get the bar on temporarily first to see where I'm at.

    Managed to get the bar on. I have about 5mm before the winch motor hits the cooler. But it’s on.

    Gave the beast a wash too. Something I forgot to do when I first parked it up in the garage. No more dirt falling on me when I’m under it.

    So all is left is...
    • mount the solenoid, somewhere
    • wire in the solenoid to the winch motor
    • cut and mount the grille
    • Move the ARB twin compressor wiring to the main battery so the compressor gets priority voltage when running.

    Then remove the ARB deluxe side steps, weld on some extra bits to make them into rock sliders.
    • fix and re attach the rear 1/4 guard flare which was ripped off
    • Get a new double din head unit.
