Just finished the install on a little 4.5k winch. Fit the entire thing behind the bumper cover. Built a replacement to the factory crash bar with 2.5x2.5 inch and 1.5x3 inch tube, then welded the mount plate right to the 1.5x3. Got the entire thing with the exception of the fairleed to fit behind the bumper cover with minimal trimming. Wireless remote, synthetic line, and hawse fairleed are on order.

Interesting!

Air bag crash detectors reinstalled?

What's the finned, added piping for? An oil cooler?

No airbag sensors were removed.

The finned tube is the factory trans cooler that is normally towards the bottom of the bumper, but I had to relocate it to make room for the winch.

Upgraded to a hawse fairleed, synthetic line, and installed a wireless remote. Super happy with how it came out. Cant wait to get back out on the trails!
