    Thinking of going with a hidden winch mount from Voyager Racks. Would the Warn Zeon Platinum 10-S winch fit? Anyone using this winch?

    Thanks!

    I'm think of doing the same for my 2014 SCV6 LR4....do you know if there are any fitment issues with the mount because of the supercharger cooling components? What year is your LR4?

    I am using a Warn Zeon Platinum 10-S in my ARB Summit bar. It's been great. I have the wireless extension kit for it also.

    For a couple hundo more get the 12-s, that's what I ended up with and love it. Was going to get the 10s...but why not get the better one for just a bit more

    Also, do it right the first time and put grade 8 hardware on there. I went up in size, may be overkill but it will outlast the tiny bolts that fit into the factor holes...

    I went with the 10-S, haven't gotten it installed yet. Waiting on the mount to arrive...

    Can't stress this enough. The factory weld nuts are ridiculously small (about as thick as two quarters stacked together) and of unknown grade. Run a sharp drill bit through them from the front and they should pop right off so you can replace them with quality hardware.

    This should be a step in anyone's winch installation IMO.

    Another hint for anyone using the TR bumper would be to take the winch tray by a local shop and have them weld the nuts that hold the bumper shell onto the back side of the winch mount tray. This will make removing and installing the bumper shell much easier. With that, and a couple of other little mods, I have mine where I can get it off or back on the truck in less than 10 minutes.

    And another vote for the Zeon 12 here.

    The 10s and 12s share the same everything, except gear ratio. I'll take line speed over stronger single line pulls. I've single and double line pulled with my 10-s about a dozen times. It does great even on single line pulls with my heavy ass LR4.
