Hey, I just found a winch this weekend while going around to yard sales. Its a 8000 lb winch and right now its mounted to a steel plate. Since I don't really want to spend the money on a new bumper i'm thinking of getting a hitch mount for it for now. I also thought of a front mount receiver so i can move it either way. Has anybody tried this, I'm mostly driving in the dessert and sand is the big issue. So for now i'm looking around for new rope for the winch and a pull pal. So far it looks like the rope will cost more than any of it. Any advice would sure help. Thanks!!!
