Is the remote clutch wiring (the 4 flat plug) rubbing on your grill? Im haven't installed my new bumper and winch (awaiting a little body work from a fender bender) and I'm worried now that that wiring (which isn't on the normal zeon obviously) will eventually fail if it is constantly rubbing.

Default wires

No, the wiring is fine, but the winch fit is super tight. That was part of the reason I moved the control pack, but the body of the winch is still mm away from the grill.

Did you have to do any major mods for this winch to fit?

No nothing. It fit right in the bumper. It is right up against the grill, but no mods to get it in there.

Have you had any issues with that little plug on the back of the winch? The one that is pressed into the grill slat? I just installed mine and I have the same issue with that plug.

How did you know where to cut the plastic filler panel? Is there a template somewhere, or did you just swag it?

I just "swagged" it... I actually cut too much off but you can't tell unless you get right on top of it and look closely. If it ever gets to bothering me too much, I'll replace it but you have to take the whole thing apart to get to it so... I just chopped off everything except the solid end pieces and along the vent holes that are there from the factory. Basically cut out all of the corrugated part.

Does anyone else have issues with the finish on the warn hawse failead? Mine is pealing up and oxidized after 1 north eastern winter. I am going to see if I can smooth down the finish on my next day off. Otherwise I'm removing it as I don't want it causing unneeded wear on my synthetic line.

Unfortunately the salt and magnesium chloride mixtures we all know very well in the snow belt wear down on many parts very quickly. You could sand the surface down and repaint the fairlead with a durable but smooth top coat.
