Sorry I do not have PS to give you numbers... Your gonna need the electrical requirements for the relay then search places like Raido Shack and maybe eBay.
I toasted a relay in my winch couple years back. Factory part was like fifty bucks for under twenty shipped I bought ALL the relays and had them shipped to me! I changed them all and kept old as spares.

BUT you need the electrical requirements for the relay. Popo don't make relays, they buy them and you can too for a lot less that factory part!

I've seen some threads on here about a work around on the factory relay for under $5 with something you can get at the local auto parts store IIRC. Do a little searching on here and I bet it will pop up.

What you really need to cross reference is style, (two, four or five pole) volts and amps of the relay...

Remember a relay don't know if it's on a winch, light or on a power steering unit in a quad. ;)

I just had to replace my power steering relay and I took the old one to NAPA and they cross referenced one and it works great. I also put a lot of dielectric grease on that bad boy so hopefully it doesn't corrode like that again.
