This kit relocates your Warn VR EVO Winch Control Box to the engine bay of your truck.
Why do I need this?
This upgrade has multiple advantages.
Firstly - this makes plugging in your winch controller very easy and safe. Simply pop your hood and plug it in. This is also makes charging your wireless remote a breeze.
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.
Thirdly - Not all winches can fit behind a bumper because the control box interferes. This kit solves that problem and adds function at the same time.
What length do I need?
Most applications require 6 feet or less. The winch comes with the ground cable 6' long which is almost always long enough.
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 (+) and down to the electrical terminals on your WARN VR Evo Winch. 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.

Please see the installation video below for directions. Note: this video was performed for the 13-18 RAM 1500 Kit and will vary for different models. However, different models will follow the same procedure.
The warn relocation kit was super easy to install. Actually the whole hidden winch system was a very easy install. Everything works great. Very happy with the looks and performance of the whole kit.
Thank You Gent’s!
Universal / WARN VR EVO Control Box Relocation Kit
My warn controller unit was pushed way into my 4runner front radar connections putting undue strain. Relocating the Warn control unit elsewhere solved this. The cable wires provided are way overbuilt and the length I chose allowed me to place the Warn control unit at a place of my preference.
Cables look like they could be Warn's own. Fit was great, look impressive, done to a high standard. I have no doubts they will last a very long time.
