    What type of Jeep do you have? How much are you willing to spend?

    8K rear winch? planning on expeditionary type stuff? i had a 4k rear winch also used as a suck down. i tried once to use it for recovery and ended up running the cable over. ive seen the same thing happen a few different times as well.


    as for a rear winch mount its gonna hang pretty low so you can still swing or drop your tailgate. either that or relocate your gas tank.

    Yep,^^^ is the answer. Especially if this is a DD. This is extra weight you can remove to save gas, tire wear, Thievery etc...
