Warn VR Evo 12-S 4x4 12V Winch with Synthetic Rope
I have managed to install the winch without assistance since it ain't that heavy to carry. They say the bull-bar needs to be removed to install the winch, but that would require additional assistance and lots of time. Managed to slip the winch in-place and securing it one bolt at a time until all 4 bolts held the winch into place. Then removed the 2 lower bolts to install the spacer and fair-lead than install the 2 bolts. Align the winch to be level then tighten.
