05-Current Tacoma Winch Switch Bracket Installation Guide

Thank you for you purchase!

Inside you will find:

  • Powder-coated aluminum winch switch bracket (Option 1, 2 & 3 Kits)
  • BlueSeas 6006 switch (Option 1 Kit)
  • 18” long, 2-gauge lead (Option 1 & 2 Kits)
  • Required hardware (Option 1, 2 & 3 Kits)

Required Tools:

  • #2 Philips Head Screwdriver
  • 5/16" socket and ratchet
  • 5/16" wrench or adjustable crescent wrench

Step 1: Remove the factory beeper from original location (in front of battery)
Step 2: Mount the winch switch bracket in the factory beepers place using the included hardware
Step 3: Mount the BlueSeas 6006 switch to the bracket using the included hardware (I have found it is easiest to remove the bottom cover of the switch, insert the nuts in their positions, then replace the bottom cover to hold the nuts in place, then bolt the switch to the bracket)
Step 4: Remove the bottom cover of switch
Step 5: Hook the 12V+ lead from the winch to the right side of the switch (side closest to the driver’s side of the vehicle) 

*NOTE #1: Please note that this switch has 3/8" studs. You may be required to enlarge the terminals on your existing 12V winch lead via 3/8" drill bit or step bit*

    **NOTE #2: Please note that the terminal on the switch to which the constant 12V connects to is NOT relevant. The switch does have a label indicating a side to which the constant 12V should attach to, however after a conversation with a BlueSeas tech, we have confirmed that there are no adverse effects in hooking up the wires to either terminal. The label is on the switch for testing purposes and to maintain a CL rating**

    Step 6: Hook the included 2-gauge lead to the left side of the switch (side closest to the engine)
    Step 7: Confirm that the switch is in the off position, and hook the loose end of the 2-gauge lead to the positive battery post
    Step 8: Replace bottom cover of switch
    Step 9: Insert factory beeper module into new position on side of winch switch bracket
    Step 10: Turn switch on and confirm your winch has power
