I have the same winch on a TJM bar. My controller box is mounted on the inside of the bar with a large hose clip . This is done for security reasons and is still accessible with ease.
The reason for security is that some people find it rather funny to free spool your winch and connect it over your roof and attached to the tow bar and then jam a paper clip in your controll box starting your winch. You can guess what sort of damage this could do.
Out of sight out of mind.

Thankd Vern, will have a closer look in the morning. Maybe some sort of security is not a bad thing.

I have an in-line circuit breaker on my power cable to the winch. I need to open the bonnet to activate it. Thus no current goes to the controll box or winch unless I want it too.
It cost me about 50$ from Tigres
