Will the new Superwinch EXP be worth the wait?

Ive just acquired a Superwinch EXP si 10 but haven't mounted it yet.
I own a 2005 Landcruiser with an ARB bumper. The mounting bolt holes are on the bottom and by the looks of this winch the motor can be clocked but the rest of it seems to be fixed in place.
This leads me to believe that the most favorable solution is to mount it upright. This is all fine and dandy but the ARB bumper doesnt have any kind of mounting plate or cradle so Im either going to have to weld in a mounting plate to the bumper or live with it laying down. Problem with laying it down is it makes all the fun little add ons like power ports etc harder to access.
Ive emailed Superwinch but have yet to hear back. Will call next week about this if I don't hear anything from them.

Other than that, it seems like a really well built unit with some very well thought out design add ons.

Will report back what I find out
