Well, if the front is buried in a hole then I would hook the winch up to the rear of the Jeep. If you have a winch mounted in a bumper its not going to be any use to you if you have it buried and cant get to it.

It is a Milemarker 12000lb winch. I built the winch tray and the bumper. The winch and tray is setup to be used on multiple vehicles for the front and rear recievers. For a permenent mount I would have gone a different route. I could have only moved the reciever down 3" and not lost any approach angle and then it would have been very unaccessable.

What concerns you about the hight of the winch mount?

If the setup becomes a problem then I will make a new setup.

and if you cant go backwards.....
also its easier to get a piece of 5/8 cable than it is to mount a 100 pound winch when in a weird position

Sounds like your getting me pretty stuck, but I still have a hi-lift jack other vehicles to mount the winch on and other recovery tools. I will still only have to attach the hook at the end of the 5/8 cable to one of the clevises on the front of the bumper.

There are down sides to having the winch mount this way, but I see more benefits than draw backs.

looks pretty sweet, i would think that there would be a leverage issue with how you have your winch setup in the tray. but i am not sure, i guess you will find out. keep us informed. it looks really nice and clean though.

I was just concerned about the leverage it would cause being so high. but I guess ya won't know till you try it out.

I was asking what lift kit that was :sorry:
