You are gonna need a quick connect for power for the lights so you can switch between light bar and winch quickly. I picked this little deal up at the flea market for $2.25 and the male end plug for .75 cents. Mounted it up right under the front grille. Simple little plug, but has a cap when not in use and for $3 I thought it was a killer setup.
The 130 watt lights I have mounted on the fairlead plug into the same plug...
Oh and then I went a little outside the box! Found a wireless relay on ebay with 2 key fobs for $14 shipped. Used it and programmed my unused Homelink buttons in the Jeep so I didn't have to run a switch. They give you three buttons, everybody uses one for garage door opener, but the other two remain unused, so I said "what the hell".
Plus it's cool to be able to turn the lights on the winch off/on from in front of the vehicle if I'm forced to use the winch at night.
Of course, since the Hellas on the light bar plug into the same plug, they operate the same way. Either via the Homelink buttons or the key fobs...
