I mounted this winch on my Xterra with a winch carrier that fits inside the factory bumper cover. The winch fits perfectly and I was able to mount the control pack up in the engine compartment. I have used it to pull down a few 40-50 foot trees. It worked great!
My only complaint is that the wireless remote doesn't activate the winch sometimes. The light comes on and acts like it is talking to the winch but nothing happens. When I plug the remote into the cable, it works fine. I have not contacted support with this problem yet, it may be an easy fix.

Can this winch be mounted feet forward on An ARB winch bumper and still access the shift lever on the gear box?
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.

In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
