You asked for it - we delivered! There is no better way to mount a winch on your 2010 - 2018 RAM 2500 or 3500 Truck!
This 100% bolt-on kit installs a winch perfectly behind your factory bumper. Compatible with all trucks equipped with the 5.7 or 6.4 liter HEMI engine. This kit comes with all the Heavy Duty Steel Bracketry, and hardware to mount a winch with pulling capacities up to 12,000 lbs.
WHAT WINCH SHOULD I CHOOSE?
We've hand picked two winches that work fantastic with our mount, and developed a suite of aftermarket upgrades for them that make using our kit safe, fun and easy.
Why these two?
-They're strong and wont weight down your suspension.
- Completely Waterproof (IP68)
-Equipped with Synthetic Line (safer, lighter, and easier to handle)
-Tons of pulling power in a compact package.
-Clockable clutch handle
- Relocatable Control Box
Our winch mounts are compatible with other medium body winches that use the same bolt pattern (10" x 4.5"). If you'd like to use another brand winch and are unsure if it will fit, please send us a message.
MULTIPLE LIGHTING OPTIONS
It's one thing to be stuck, but it's worse if you can't see! That's why we offer multiple Lighting Kit options that will illuminate your way or work area. These include brackets that bolt to our hidden winch mount, and include a sealed wiring harness.
We've hand picked quality lights that are of great value. More importantly they integrate seamlessly with our Hidden Winch Mount.
Our most popular light option is the Street Legal SAE Kit. These 3" Cubes throw out a clean beam of light and match to the factory LED Headlight color temperature. They turn on in an instant and focus light down along the road, not the heavens. These are available in a WHITE or YELLOW lens option.
CONTROL BOX RELOCATION KIT
Want the upmost reliability? Of course you do, that's why you're shopping at VICE. Don't forget to add the Control Box Relocation Kit This kit we build moves the brain box of the winch into 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. Along with all the pre-made wires, we supply a mount that bolts directly into your engine bay - no drilling any holes.
OH THATS NEAT EH
Another neat component included in the winch mount kit is the Hook Anchor. No longer worry about rattles and scratching the paint on your bumper by letting your winch hook dangle and flap around at the fairlead. Simply slid the hook over the Anchor, and tension the line. Securely mounted, and easily accessed.
This mounting kit fits all RAM 2500 and 3500 trucks that have the 5.7 or 6.4 HEMI Gas Motors. This kit DOES NOT FIT Trucks with the 6.7 Cummins Diesel Engines due the packaging of its intercooler etc. This kit is compatible with front parking sensors and license plates.

Installation is straight forward - See for yourself in the comprehensive installation video below!
I installed the hidden winch mount and the solenoid relocation kit. The mount looks very beefy and installed relatively easily once I figured out that not all Ram trucks have equal parts - I had some extra mounts that I needed to adjust for. The fairlead for the Warn 12000 winch that you folks recommend had to be adjusted with a die grinder as it didn't fit into the slot in the grill - the holes had to be elongated and the fairlead moved up or the bumper wouldn't go on flush. The winch line holder that came with the kit I removed after trying it as it placed the cable end too tight over the fairlead and the clevis holder was cutting into the rope. But my biggest issue was the relocation box... my Ram had a different assembly in front of the fuse box which included a different type of mount for the fusebox (thicker) and a factory wiring harness that was in the way and couldn't be moved. I had to completely modify the bracket and mount the controller horizontally on top of the fuse box, meaning I'll have to remove the solenoid pack everytime I want to check fuses. This took a couple of hours of fabwork and adjustment. Overall a good product if the installer has the ability to adjust for things.
Hi there, I won’t install the winch until the summer, I have no garage and here in St Albert , it’s still quite cold.
As I’m very mechanical inclined the YouTube video and written instructions could be more informative. Like what will be left off from the OEM and what adjustments may need to be made. Other than that the product itself is well made and well thought out.
This set up is no doubt the best I've seen.
Installed this hidden winch mount by myself with minimal profanity. The online video is perfect for all necessary reference. Do yourself a favor and get the light mounts. They complement the winch perfectly. Communication from Vice Designs was great!
