This kit relocates your Winch Control Box to the engine bay of your truck. This has multiple advantages. Firstly - this makes plugging in your winch controller very easy and safe. Simply pop your hood and plug it in. Secondly - the control box is the least waterproof and most likely part to cause your winch to fail. Moving it to the top of the engine bay keeps the contactors and electrical connections away from submersion in water, mud and road grime.
The kit contains an 18” power cable, a universal mounting bracket with mounting hardware, as well as custom length winch power cables that are color coded to match the factory WARN EVO for ease of installation.
Using a piece of rope, route where you want to mount your control box in your engine bay (within 1.5 feet of your battery) down to the electrical terminals on your WARN VR Evo. Measure the length of this rope to determine what length you require for your kit. Make sure you give yourself enough slack, its better to be a bit too long than too short.
All kits are hand cut and crimped to order with North American Sourced Cables and Connectors. Better than OEM. Check out the video below to see how strait forward the installation is.
One of the ring terminals came crimped but not actually connected to the 3 AWG wire. I'll have to go buy a new ring terminal as well as a hammer crimping tool to make this work. For the price paid, you'd think they could have crimped it on properly, or at least checked to see if it was on there prior to shipping it out. I will be asking Vice to reimburse me the cost of the new ring terminal as well as the hammer crimping tool that I had to buy to fix their defective product. If I was going to have to be doing my own crimping and connecting, I could have just made this myself for a lot less money.
This was a very straightforward install. My only issue was the universal mounting bracket had to be modified for my install. Overall great product. I would definitely recommend this company.
