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.

I used the vice’s relocation on a 2007 Tacoma engine bay near the air intake.
Instructions were very clear insulation was easy
The ordering process was very streamlined
Awesome kit for my GX470 so the electronics don’t get wet
4Wheels in Minnesota installed my bumper and lights and had to relocate the control box. The relocation kit worked perfect, its installed at the front of the hood perfect access for plugin remote. Vice design thank you and had fast shipping!
This was my first winch bumper install from Chassis Unlimited the Octane bumpers and was advised I would have to move the control box to the side. I guess the sales rep didn't actually install one since there's not enough space. I researched relocating the control box and seen the video for the Ram then figured out the only place mine would fit under the hood off the firewall with the bracket and 9' cables ordered and another bracket one I fabricated it turned out sick with the box in a perfect location for aesthetics which is my main concern and accessible if needed to connect to the plug. Excellent customer support as well when it came to confirmation on exactly how to wire the relocated control box. I'll be sending in some photos which will show where the box can be located and about the only place as well in a 2015 F350 6.7 Super Duty.
