Once I get a larger sized pulley from Ryan I intend to install a 200A large case 3g into my '95.

I've got the 2ga. cables from Slickerthanyou as well, along with 225A fuses.

My current setup (3g 95A small case) has a fairly smallish black/orange cable (6ga maybe?) going from the Alternator to the fender mounted solenoid, and then another smallish red cable over to the battery, and then I believe there is another red running from battery directly back to starter.

So my question is that I think I want to be removing that black/orange going to the fender solenoid, and have the alternator juice going directly to the fuse box I have, and then directly to batt + through the 2ga cables and 225A fuse block. The alternator output is probably best served going right into what it's supposed to be keeping charged, correct?

I would think that my stock + red cable going over to the fender solenoid would then be fine left as it is, same with red+ going back to the starter?

I really only need the large alternator output for the winch use as I don't have a lot of other heavy draw items, and the winch of course is 2ga cable going directly to the battery.

Any issues anyone see?

first you want the alt and batt hooked up
then the starter.
then tie the winch into that.
then hook up the power distribution box.

I use one of these for my central hub

So are you saying Ryan that instead of bringing the alternator cable directly to the + batt terminal (including the fuse block), I should hook everything to a central hub? Including the winch and starter? Why wouldn't I just go directly to the + batt post with the alternator, starter and winch?

That would be nice, but I don't think I have the room to do it. You've got way more space over there than I do. I've got those emissions air tubes, plus the whole ARB compressor sitting on the plastic fender, and the solenoid and a relay sitting on the metal fender about where your junction block is.

if you have a PMGR starter you don't need the starter relay on the fender. :duh
That is why mine is gone, replaced it with a smaller 5-prong relay :toothless
