Need help on winch installation!

I just bought a 2011 Grizzy 700 eps about a month ago and im trying to mount a 2500 pound super winch to it. I have it mounted up but i cant figure out where the best place is to put the selenoid and all of the other wiring components.

and also the red wire that is supposed to get tapped into the ignition wire, where is the place place to do that withouit messing anythinbg up?

I put mine on the rear of the winch mounting plate. There are holes already in the plate for it.

ha ha, I asked the same question about the "contactor". I know the directions say to put it somewhere dry. I didnt want to mount mine on the winch plate but it was really the only way, plus everyone on here says it will be fine there. As far as the Red wire to the red ignition wire, i used an scotch lock quick splice and wrapped it in electrical tape.

Take your hood off, and pull the ignition wires from the key area out a tad, then use a scotch lock to tie into the wire that gets hot when the key is turned, think its white/red. That way the winch won't work unless the key is in it.

I jammed my solenoid down behind the batter towards the shifter area, it just floats around there.

I cut my excess cables and made little ATV jumper cables out of them and keep them in my box.

I put my contactor on the winch plate also.... As far as using the quick connect splicer they are okay in a emergency but after time they will lose contact so when your winch stops working check that connection first. 9 out of 10 times that will be your problem, I cut my keyed wire and soldered back together for a never fail connection.....jmo

Not sure about 700's but on my 660 I mounted relay upsidedown on bottom of body over rear diff. Just drilled storage box bottom and used some SS 1/4 bolts with locknuts. Red wire to fuse panel under seat as the harness has to pass by the area back to relay.

Just installed a viper 3000 classic on my 2012 700 today. I ended up putting the contactor under the battery cover up front. Made two mounts for it out of 1" strap 1/8" thick by 2" long and tack welded them to the metal battery hold down bar. Drilled the tabs out to match the hole pattern on the contactor. Was able to get all the wires under the battery cover without a problem. Drilled one of the drain holes out with a 7/16" drill bit so I could pass my two winch cables through the existing battery box drain hole just behind the radiator. As far as the red wire for the handle bar rocker, I used a splice connector and spliced it into the + lead under the battery cover that goes to the 12V outlet under the key on the right fender. The wire I spliced into on the 2012 was pink, I just followed the wire on the back side of the 12V supply into the battery box. This will give your winch power when the key is on and none when it is off. Biggest pain in the install was fighting to get the battery screw back on the nut after putting the winch leads on the battery terminals, what a cluster, than goodness for aluminum tig welding filler rod.
