use rear receiver hitch as a winching anchor point

I have a 2013 Tacoma TRD with the Off Road and Tow package. I am new to driving Off Road and don't have the money to mount a hitch on the front. Can I mount the winch on a hitch receiver mount and slid it into the factor installed hitch in the rear of my truck and not worry about damaging anything. A friend gave me a Badlands 9000lbs winch. Any advice would be helpful. thank you

You may choke on the cost of the receiver hitch mount and cables long enough to reach the rear receiver, though.

By the time you get a front receiver + winch cradle for the front, youre pretty close to the price of a mount. And it looks like crap and is hard to use. So yes it can be done, but i wouldnt for the sake of saving $50.
