Look­ing at winch­ing from a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion

FROM THE JOBSITE TO THE TRAIL­HEAD, FRONT-MOUNTED WINCHES ARE RATHER pop­u­lar. You can even walk away from a Ram deal­er­ship with a Power Wagon hid­ing a 12,000-pound winch be­hind the front bumper. There is, how­ever, a prob­lem with front winches—they only per­form their du­ties in the front of the ve­hi­cle. Since a big part of four-wheel­ing is prob­lem solv­ing, read on, and let’s solve this winch­ing dilemma by look­ing at it from a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion.
