I installed my Badlands 5000 lb. winch on my 2014 Teryx LE using the KFI mount. When I started looking things over to figure out a wiring plan I noticed that one of the wire connection posts was just touching the machine's front guard. I did some reading and learned that this isn't uncommon. There seems to be two ways people deal with this. They either hammer a dent into the guard or move the post on the winch. Moving the post doesn't seem to be an option with this model 68144. If it can be done I'd be interested in hearing how. I really don't want to hammer the dent in if I can avoid it but at this point it seems the only option.

I did not have to dent my stock bumper on my install of the Badland-5000. But, I did not use any aftermarket mount with my install.



Here is my install.

The link seems to go to a racing thread. In my previous winch thread i remember you saying you didn't use a mount. I decided to use one because I liked the idea of gaining a little height. I was hoping to have this done before an upcomming trip to Hatfield & McCoy but with having to still figure out the electrical that isn't going to happen.

Surprised you can't clock it. If you can't, you'd think they would have 2 models. Choice "A" and Choice "B"...

Not sure how they can build one with out being able to clock it. I fought with a winch after the Previous Owner failed to clock it and the internals broke. The seller on E-Bay sent me a set of brushes free. Very nice. I was able to install them after seeing that there were 2 ways to install the plate that the brushes were installed on. 1 way caused big amp draw. Flipped the plate over and tried again. Worked for me. Still working. I use my winches for snow blades. Haven't had to use them to pull myself or others...

Good Luck...

I just installed a bandlands 5000 (purchased two weeks ago) with kfi mount and clocked it.... can't remember the model but I think i still have the box in the trash. Mine had the two screws and took 2 seconds to clock. I'll try and get the model off the box if i still have it.

This would solve the OP's problem so he doesn't need to dent the bumper.

I took mine apart when I got it to see if it could be clocked and I did not see that it could be done. I can't honestly remember what the issue was??? It was either that the other holes were not threaded, or there just wasn't other holes. I just don't remember what the issue was???

At any rate, if I am wrong I apologise for the misinformation I wrote above.

So found the box and it is the same model as the OP. You just need to take the 2 screws out and clock it. Their are 2 more screw locations after to rescrew it to.

I bought a Travellar tractor supply winch. Loosened the screws, twisted and re installed em. Pia but easy enough. I wonder and think both brands might be same manufacture.

Help a Newbie....what is clocking? I have a Badland winch to install and have no idea what you guys are talking about.

Motor end. remoce case bolts/screws n twist in to another location on the clock. reinstall screws. Most are predrilled inside to do this. Don't remove and risk a mess. I slide it 1/8" and twist till screws find new hole. 2 sets hands can help.

I pulled the two long 8 mm bolts and tried to turn the cap. It wouldn't turn. At that point I lifted up the cap just enough to unseat it. I immediately felt spring pressure so I stopped there. I was afraid that lifting the cap up any more than I did might end up with a pile of u known internal parts on the table so I stopped. It sounded to me like most of you who did this just pulled the bolts and turned it right? Maybe my model is configured differently.

You are so close. Like was stated, pull it about 1/8" (maybe a little more). Twist in either direction 90* and push the bolts back in, all the way, looking for the pair of threaded holes in the other end cap. Now you should be able to connect the wires from the contactor and not have them contact the frame and short out...

Good Luck...

Thanks. I guess I need to lift the cap up a little bit more before turning it. When I felt the spring pressure I got nervous thinking if I raised it further I was going to have a mess to deal with.

I been 4-wheeling for 45 years. I always set my trucks, Jeeps, and ATV's up to pull out the way they went in. NOT farther in! As a side note it's usually easier to winch someone else from the rear. You can get dug in when facing away in tight places easier. I even have a 12,000 # set up like this for my HD2500.

I used the supplied winch mount plate, bought some 2 x 2 x 3/16" bar stock to use as a hitch insert and welded the plate on it. Drill the 5/8" hole for the hitch pin first.

I also bought a bumper mount 2" receiver at HF. I had to trim it a little and drill 4 holes to get it to bolt on the front where most mount the winch permanent. Then I wired the Teryx for front and rear plugs so I can move the winch front to back and vice-versa.

It rides on the rear full time.

I'll try to get some pics of both this weekend.
