Re: Installing the Viper Max 4500 winch "hope this helps"
No worries about "disparging the product"....I was just tossing out there that RZR's are so popular and the install fits fine at the end of the day, but that it is, as you've said, a challenging install. Our provided pictures, though improved from two years ago, could still be updated with anything you all have. The information on this post is also outstanding and we'll use it for further instructions. And GREAT idea on the diagrams....I'll see what our engineer can come up with on that.
In terms of winch "feet" hardware....guys usually use two of the longer and two of the shorter metric bolts included with the winch package. I know it's the way WARN does it too, but it can lead to some confusion. Some installs on other UTV's and ATV's require having the longer bolts, so we try to cover as many as possible with the "standard package."
It'd be nice to have four of each length mounting bolts, but that adds to cost and guys would chuck the four that aren't used. So as it stands you can use two longer, two shorter, and have two spares in case you lose 1-2 bolts. Does that make sense?
