    Here's what it looks like on a 2004 Sierra. I had the fairlead cover smoothed and paint-matched. (Look below the autobot logo.) Notice how it is off-center, sitting more toward the driver's side than passenger side. I wasn't expecting that because the Warn photos of the hidden kit are at an angle, however, when installing the winch it becomes apparent why this is: the winch itself -IS- centered in the carrier ... and the winch motor sits more toward the passenger side and is unexposed like the fairlead -- because it doesn't need to be.

    Also, here's a link to some shots I took during installation: http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/album.php?albumid=20993

    Surreal has a nice install on his. I have seen it up close. If/when I decide to get a winch I will certainly look into going the same route.
