For the longest time I've always wanted a winch. As someone who enjoys going out exploring alone, it's almost a necessity to have. 589 Fab makes a mount that goes behind the factory bumper.

The install was pretty straight forward. I cut the control box bracket shorter for a cleaner look under the hood.

All that's needed now is a good muddy trail to test everything out.

I’m guessing that kills the automatic cruise control.

Nope, ADD makes a bracket that relocates it behind the grill. I've just been to busy with work to finish that part.

Used a Rough Country 9500lb synthetic winch. Shipping took about a month if I remember correctly because they had to make a new batch.

Looks great and keeps it slick. (What wheels and tires do you have)

Super helpful post! Thank you for sharing. I might have to look more into design, it's just so clean.

Do you have pictures of the control box?

I am wanting to order this and install, but my only concern is that I have a catch can where it looks like they want tht control box. I've already moved my ACC in preparation to order and install. Thanks.

Any updates or issues?
After my weeks of back and forth research...
(full winch bumper vs hidden winch)
I finally pulled the trigger on a 589 Fab winch mount and their RC synthetic 9500 pro. :)
Hopefully I dont have to wait too long for delivery.
