So this afternoon I got in my winch and the mounting plate for it, which was pretty impressive seeing that I only placed the order Wednesday. The instructions were easy to follow, and by that I mean I didn't follow the instructions at all, I simply pulled up the video on the product page and followed along with the installer. Installation time was right around 2 hours, and the only reason it took that long was I have a small compressor so I had to keep waiting for my air pressure to build back up and I had to cut away a small area in the front of the tow rings in order to reach both bolts.
After that the plate went on smooth and seated nice and flush.
After getting the plate bolted back in with the tow hooks I attached the feeder plate and got it bolted in.
Next I wired everything up and bolted in the winch, not too difficult. I wish that the bottom of the winch was actually threaded, versus simply using nuts that slide into slots though. Here's everything seated nice and neat.
Finally the view from the front with the hood down. A nice clean appearance without taking anything away from functionality.
I would like to give my thanks to the members of this forum, who steered me towards the rough country brand (at about a third the cost of a warn). I fired it up and after un and re-spooling it everything seems to be working perfectly and without issues.
