4.5”x10” seems to be a fairly common/popular mounting spec. Even matches my old CPE POS.
 As far as I can tell it should be the same as your XRC... of course it depends on which Warn winch you’re considering. They don’t all mount the same.

I should have been able to figure that out...

VR10 is $724 at northridge - same one i bought 6 months ago for $803 - seems pretty good for the couple times i used it.

That's one nice deal.

Matt!  Next time give me a call and I'm sure I could at least match that price, if not beat it.

See if I ever loan you my tire chains again!
Pffft!

Sorry Dave!
Total brain-lapse on my part. 😞

BA is on my list of vendors going forward... as it should be!
