Land Rover 110 Project: Re-routing the winch wiring

Winch power cables & power steering pipe loose between the bump stop and axleWhen I was under the Land Rover replacing the axle breathers, I noticed the winch power cables and power steering pipe was not secured properly.

In addition to that, the cables and pipework hung down between the axle an bump stop and were at risk at being crushed when the axle travel is at it's limit.

The photo on the left above shows how I found the cabling.

This post is about how I sorted it out!

The winch power cables were routed so badly that I had to disconnect them from the battery, remove them and start again.

This time I routed them along the chassis member, up behind the engine mount, and the inside of the inner wing to keep them away from mud/stones thrown up by the front tyre.

From there, I continued them along the chassis, over the front bulkhead crossmember and into the battery box under the passenger seat.

The photos below show you the new routing:
