    I want to see pictures of how you guys have mounted a winch in the rear of your pick up or blazer. I'm open to most anything, but I want to get my 8274 in the back and my 12,000 warn in the front. Having some sort of mult-mount set up does not work for me, but ultimately being able to remove the rear winch whenever I'm not wheeling is something I'd like to keep in mind.

    Thanks, Chad.

    putting that 8274 up under the rear is going to be really hard. personally i'd put the 8274 in the front and make the 12000 in the rear removable.

    I'm not putting it up under anywhere. I'd like the bottom of the winch to be in the same plane with the bottom of the frame, but have the winch past the rear bumper. I don't care if I can open the tailgate or not...

    Besides, if you've ever been really stuck before you'll know it's much easier to pull yourself backwards than forwards. Therefore, I want the tougher winch in front.
