How do you mount a Warn winch controller on an FJ40? Pipe clamps?

i've got some 3/4" x1/8" steel strips, we could make a bracket for it.
when i had a 6k winch on my 40, thats how i had it mounted.

i'm home working on a rear 40 bumper if you want to stop by.

I drilled a couple holes in the bib and bolted it right up behind the winch.. But I had the kind of 40 that I didn't mind drilling holes in the body.

I figured it out. Thanks everyone. I used some 4 1/2" hose clamps.

Cool but my question would be what type of Warn winch :D

Judging by your winch mount that looked like my old one from my 40 you were going with something other than a M8274 that you could mount feet down. In that case you can either mount the control box to the motor using said hose clamps (or zip ties which I did at first as a temp solution) OR you can mount the box remotely. When the XD9000 was on my 40 the PPO had the box connected to a metal bar (maybe an inch wide) that stuck up about 8-10" and was bolted to the rear of the winch mount.

It's an XD9000. Here's what it looks like:
