I have a VR8 and this cover fits well. Had it for a year now and it's starting to fade a little but still does the job.

Everything fades!! In my defense it was the first time I did the let me google that for you because when I googled the exact phrase I found like I dunno 10 winch covers...…. and the link does take you to Quadratec, Northridge, and every other place that has WARN in it..... you might have to actually look under accessories or something Maybe your pc has too much Gar Porn on it

Factor 55 sells a specialty fastener for winch security. This is similar to a locking lug nut solution. Can’t comment on functionality as I have no need for it, but seems a reasonable removal deterrent (both for a thief and the owner).

Tack weld. Or plug weld, depending on if you want to be able to remove it.
