Video Transcript for Bulldog LED Rocker Switch Review

Shane: Hey guys, Shane here with etrailer.com. Today I have a Bulldog rocker switch. It's going to be an LED lighted switch, so when you hit the button in or out for bringing your winch in or out, the light on the switch is going to light up. It's going to be dash-mounted, and this is going to give you the option to sit in your seat and push the button to work your winch, rather than getting out your 10 foot cable with your controller on it.This switch is not just going to be designed for Bulldog winches. We actually installed this on an etrailer.com winch, so just because it says Bulldog, that's just a name brand. It can be used with any winch.To start your installation, the first thing you need to do is figure out where you want to put it on your dash, and then you're going to have to cut out this square.

Now there are brackets that you can pick up here at etrailer if you're wanting to install that, and then we just push the switch into the bracket. However, the switches do have wings on them that, if you cut this the right way, you can get this to slide it in and it'll hold it in place.The way I did it was I took a piece of cardboard, took my switch, marked it out, and I just simply cut out the cardboard so it will slide over the switch, used the cardboard as my template and then kept trying my switch until I got it trimmed out the right way. It's going to be a four wire switch. You're going to have power, ground and your in and out for your winch. Ground can go to a body ground anywhere.

I just used a self-tapper and tapped it right into the frame. Power, I ran it over to my fuse panel and tapped it into the ignition fuse.Keep in mind, this is just the fuse. Your wiring and your spade connectors are not going to come with a switch, so you will have to provide those. And then your in and out for your winch needs to be hooked up to the solenoid. Once you get your switch installed, switch it, should hear your winch move and your in and out light up.

That's going to do it for a look at, and walk-through installation on the Bulldog rocker switch with LED light..

I can’t say enough about etrailer and the staff. They are top notch people to deal with. This review is on the Superwinch Terra 4500 wire rope, Superwinch custom fit mounting kit and Bulldog dash mount rocker switch. Installation on my 2017 Polaris Ranger XP1000 EPS, 3 passenger, single cab. I will try to attach pictures of front mounting plate, winch, wire routing and etc. The Superwinch mounting plate and winch assembly fit was an easy install. Decided to route winch wiring, wiring from winch remote cable and Bulldog dash mounted rocker switch down and back through the tunnel of the Ranger where there was existing wiring and coolant tubes and secured all wiring. I mounted the winch solenoid in the center bay beneath the center passenger seat where the ECM and fuse box and relay center is located. That put the solenoid in a dry location and made a good install. The circuit breakers w/cover are neat the battery as pictures show. Winch remote connector on left side of upper dash and Bulldog rocker switch to the right of existing dash switches. Received the etrailer order on Wednesday June 25th, started install on Friday the 27th and finished on Saturday the 28th after deciding on how I wanted to route all wiring. The Superwinch works like a charm, rocker switch and remote function great. Installation is clean and I hope the pictures show what a neat installation this was. Dealing with etrailer is always a good experience and I will be back. Now I’ll try to include pictures.

Great product - much better than the mictuning that it replaced. I like the fact that it has a lower profile in the dash than the mictuning as well. Simple wire up on my Polaris HD 6000 winch, which has a provision for a wired control (it comes with remote only) but Polaris doesn't offer an advertised kit even though it is wired for, which is another complaint altogether. In short, I'm happier with this 15$ switch than I am with the $21,000.00 Polaris XP 1000 Ranger Crew it is installed on at this point. I HIGHLY recommend this product and seller!
