    I'm looking for first hand experience. Has anyone used a receiver cradle mounted winch?

    I think it would be much more practical to have a winch you could mount front or back, cuz, let's face it, sometimes you need to winch out, not through.

    But, that said, I wonder how stable it would be. I imagine putting that kind of torque on your receiver hitch (because you can seldom winch straight out) could do some real damage.

    Thoughts?

    My buddy rock crawls. He has a front and rear setup.
    Works great and he has a mount in the back of his 4runner to store it when he is not off roading. He has his plates on mounts to go in the receiver so the whole setup is hidden.
