Badlands model# 68144, 5000 lb.winch install questiin

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 had to dent my 2016 T4 slightly to make it work.

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.

You can't clock the current Badland-5000 like they use to do with the older model.

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...

Much as I wanted to avoid it, it appears to be hammer time!

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.

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.
