Amazon.com: TUFF STUFF PORTABLE WINCH MOBILE MOUNT with QUICK CONNECTOR: Automotivewell i could but i would rather it be hidden and not have to take it off and on, but it is something iv thought about, know where to find one?
On that link it shows what people have bought as a group and it looks like a nice winch.have any of you fond a rack + the winch, i think a compatible winch is the biggest thing, and also.. would it just hook up to the battery or would it be BETTER to get a spare
ill take a second look, i think the big problem i have with buying two separate things is i dont get to see how they go together before i buy it,On that link it shows what people have bought as a group and it looks like a nice winch.
I haven't done it, but for occasional use a single battery would probably be ok with the truck running. If used often, dual batteries would be best.
I like the receiver mount concept also. That way you can put it on either end as need arises.Why can't you get a hitch mounted winch and use your rear hitch? :dunno:
Ditto, besides why compromise bed space with mount hardware unless you are using it all the time and you also limit yourself to how you can set up to use the winch if it is sitting in the bed. Narrow trail, guy stuck in front of you and your winch is mounted in the bed? Not convenient.I like the receiver mount concept also. That way you can put it on either end as need arises.
