You can get the converter from goodwinch that does it think its about £200. I have gone down the route of having a 24v alternator and two batteries for my winch then running the standard alternator for the ingnition sysytem.

What winch do you have? Is it up to the 24 volts?

I have done a bit of research and chatting to friends, Running a 12v winch of of 24v reduces the amount of current drawn however burns the motors out quicker (approx 2 years heavy winching)

how did you fit a 24v alternator? any pics? my ideal would be to use the standard alternator but i think it isn't man enough

cheers

The alternator is off a toyota coaster its the same setup as rob at ORA had on his Jimny. It fits with a tiny bit of fabrication to the brackets. Not got the Jimny to take any pictures as it is at ORA having some work done. When i was building the truck i was looking at going 12v but changed my mind but i went to the local car electrics place and told the chap i was after a bigger output alternator and he listed loads that would fit in the space of the standard one that would be man enough to run one of the goodwinch boxes.

is there a way round buying the converter? I have a friend that has done it but he is in the navy and away for a few months!

another question what batteries have you fitted? was looking at the Numax CXV-X but got a feeling i might struggle to get 2 under the bonnet

i am running two Odyssey PC1500 for the winch but mine is traybacked so not got the issue with space. May be able to get two under the bonnet if you could move some bits about and fab up a cradle over the other wheel arch.

Mines done as i have got the two alternators. The only way round buying the convertor i think is to run a 24v alternator back to two 12v batteries in series to give you the 24v.

its all food for thought at the moment do you need a converter for each winch?

Are you sure your winch motor can take 24 volts? Not all can.
