    Read the other post about winches. I have a 95i on my truck. You can also read my review on http://www.off-road.com/chevy. There is a bunch of good information on that site. Of couse they scewed me over on about 85% of the good information just because they are endorced by that POS Milemarker.

    Go warn, go big and you will beable to go home... I wouldn't suggest anything smaller than a XD9(i) for a fully loaded trail ready Blazer. OH, thats right I said "trail ready", so that already eliminates: Superwinch, Mile Marker & Ramsey...

    I'm assuming you are talking about the "quick mount" style of setup. Glen (depdog) has one, and a guy here in town has one also. If you are talking about reverse mount (mount backwards) I doubt it. Its designed to pull from under the drum. Either that or wrap the line backwards.

    I was also wondering for a permanant mount, do you need to cover the winch at all from the weather? A reciever mount would make more sense here...

    If you want a quick mount I'm sure you could fab up a strong enough mount for one. Even if you just used a standard receiver in front for a quick mount and beef the doo doo out of it. As far as covering the winch, I haven't covered my winch. I may get one later, but its not a large concern.

    A quick mount system can be made for the Warn 12000, as well as for any other winch.
    Keep in mind if you use your reciever, the weak point is the connect pin, this is only rated up to 5,000 lbs.
    If you make your own quick mount, or have a metal shop fabricate it for you, make sure to use a double reciever tube spaced at the ends of the platform. That way you can safely pull up to 10,000 lbs.
    You don't want to see a flying XD9500i when the pin shears, as a local guy did (twice) when pulling his Suburban on 44"'s out.
