Every application I have seen shows the winch up front, usually in a custom bumper. Combined they may add 500 pounds plus to the front end. Wouldn't it make more sense to put the winch in the rear? We have a dd with a bb454 up front, with nothing in the rear but the axle and gas tank. With more equal weight distribution, wouldn't it be more stable? Yes, my lack of experience may show. But isn't it logical to put the winch in the rear? I have never seen it. Must be a very good reason.
