We're stoked to now offer the best recovery solution for your 5th Gen (2019 - 2023) RAM 2500 or 3500 Truck!
Many of you want to have a winch equipped truck (Hey we do too!) But that leaves you with only one option with expensive dealership options - the Powerwagon. You can now build your very own off-road exploring rig from a Tradesman, Laramie, Longhorn, Limited, Big Horn etc. Simple to Luxury you can have your cake and eat it too.
This bolt-on kit installs a winch perfectly behind your factory bumper. Compatible with all trucks equipped with the 6.4 liter HEMI engine. This kit comes with all the Heavy Duty Steel Bracketry, and graded hardware to mount a winch with pulling capacity up to and including 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.
WARN VR EVO and SMITTYBILT X20 GEN3
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 fog 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 utmost 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 slide 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 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.
All the heavy duty steel bracketry is dipped to remove any contaminants before being coated in a Zinc based primer before being top coated with a Satin Black Powdercoat Finish. All hardware provided is also Zinc coated and Graded.
Installation is straight forward - See for yourself in the comprehensive installation video below!

Fit nicely without removing the bumper! Installed it with a Warn Zeon Platinum 12-S winch with the Warn relocation kit. Only issues that I wished I would of know before the install was the correct way to (clock) the Warn winch on the hidden bumper! The video and instructions manual were wrong on clocking the winch to the hidden bumper mount for my model of winch! Had to install it twice. After contacting Vice Design on proper installation for my model of winch I removed and re-clocked the winch and it worked!
4 out of 5 stars because the installation instructions should of been better eliminating having to install twice! Luckily I was the one installing it, if not I would of had to pay twice for the winch installation! Before installing a winch call to make sure you have it clocked the right way!!
It fit great works as it should looks great and fit perfectly
I love my Ram 2500 Tradesman but always admired the hidden winch of the Power Wagons. Upon starting to research if using the Power Wagon bracketry would be possible Vice Designs product was the first to show up. With the YouTube video paired with the written instructions instillation is fail proof. I ran into one problem with my install because my truck is also equipped with a Western snowplow bracket. With some minor modifications the Vice kit still fits perfect, the team also took the time to the concern I had about there not being a disclaimer on the website about possible fitment issues when the truck is also equipped with a snowplow. Overall the Vice Design team are great people who make great products!!!
