    Are you talking about the big battery cables? If so, you should put a breaker on the positive cable anyway, so get a breaker and you'll need another cable to connect to the winch.

    Yeah, Theres two. Both labled winch. Breaker is a great idea.
    Why would I need another to connect to the winch other the - +?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound complicated.

    Your positive cable is going to end at the breaker. You'll need another cable to go from the breaker to the winch, or whatever it's going to.
