    How many have put a 9k winch on a 2" hitch on the front/rear ? Just got a Ramsey 9K and was planning on doing that type of setup. But got to thinking that's alot of stress on a little 2" connection point.
    Anyone ever have a problems with that type setup ?

    Thanks BUSHWACKER winch works great :D

    I have a Ramsey Patiot 9500 on a quick mount setup. I replaced the cable with sythetic rope and lost about 25 pounds so its a lot easier to carry now.

    Don't pull at full load in excessive of 45 degrees. You will be fine otherwise.

    Oh, I can also use the winch on the front or back of my tow rig and on my trailer.

    Been using this one for over ten years, though it is 8000lb, front and rear as well!
