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.

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

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.
