Well I did have to mount it feet forward but there's so much room. I will post pics a little later, gotta wire it up now.No. It's just for those of us that have to mount them feet forward because the free spool knob is difficult to access. If it is accessible then you are fine. Need pictures though....
With my Harbor Freight winch and old style ARB bull bar I had to drill new holes in the fairhead to center with the opening in the bumper. How does the opening match on the New style bumper and your Warn winch? I also upgraded the mounting bolts to grade 8. The one that went thru the fairhead mounting plate needed to longer. The control box clears the grill but since adding the front license plate bracket I probably rotate to the top since it would be better protected. License plate bracket was added to cover the two other fairhead openings for other mounting options, which in my opinion is fugly. Like the new look better but when you buy used you buy what ever shows up local.
I haven't researched the tailgate storage does that require cutting any tailgate? Like the idea of have better place to store things I keep in there all the rather than a milk crate in the back.
