    Default Ramsey 12000RE 24V questions

    So ive used the winchs(hmmwv winchs) and i happened to acquire one.. well im trying to figure out my best bet for makin this thing work on my 12V TJ, ive got a hmmwv winch bumper and rollers. What im really wondering is has anyone heard of converting one of these to 12V? I know they make the 12000RE in 12V but i cant find a place to replace the motor and cylinoid(sp). Keep in mind i have a set of hmmwv batteries that prolly need chargin..so i might be able to use them and keep it 24v..anyone know of an alternator that could keep up with the 24V winch and 2-3 batteries?

    You can have your alt re-spun for higher output...not sure if it would work that way though.

    That is a lot of work and a lot of weight (esp with convertor and more batteries) to mount a mediocre milspec winch man. Also, if you do go that route, make damn sure you make a STRONG winch plate to help keep those frame rails from pulling together as a TJ is only supposed to be rated up to a 10k winch. You could run into problems with it being too much winch for the front of your frame to handle, especially with the extra torque that a 24v should produce. Just my $.02.

    all you need to do is figure out how many amps that winch will need to pull and find an alt. that can handle that many. hook up 24v to the winch (using one extra battery and your factory) keeping your 12v stuff wired 12v and you should in principle be good to go

    yea and get ready to replace your batteries and alt about every 4-6 months
