Ideal for 3/4 and 1-ton pickups and all types of large frame rigs that require longer and heavier pulls.

With it's fast line-speed andlower amp draw, the VR EVO series of winches are the hardest-working standard-duty winches Warn's ever made, with tactical styling that looks great up front and at a price that won't pull you out of your budget.
First off, when I went to have this winch with a bumper installed the winch I ordered from and then waited to have installed by 4 Wheel parts for some reason was not delivered to this particular 4 Wheel parts store! You would think there would have been some some review done to make sure that the parts for the install appointment would be in , but not in this matter. Nevertheless the manager of the store provided a Warn winch with a nylon rope. Not what I ordered but what I settled for given that it takes ninety minutes to get to that store from where I live and was were my online order was to be delivered. Will I go back ? Not sure that I will.
Nice and heavy, haven’t gotten a chance to install it since bumper hasn’t arrived after two months. You can feel the quality different to harbor freight winches with each part and overall weight.
can this winch be installed feet forward on and ARB bumper and still access the shift handle on the gear box? Is the gear box clickable if gear shift handle needs to be aligned?
Answer this question
Yes it can and should be mounted feet forward, just as it shows in the picture. The level will still be accessible on all ARB bumpers. The control packs can be relocated for low-profile installations.
