    Personally I would have someone fab a bracket that bolts to the frame. Then you wont have to worry about it. I have been looking at getting a custom front receiver hitch that bolts to the frame so I can get a movable winch. You never know when you will need to winch from the rear.

    Doubt it. The winch mount systems I ran over the years were all securely attached to the frame, and with additional support brackets(4 mounting points) My current truck is mostly a tow rig so I never did anything for a fixed mount. I installed a Curt 2" front receiver hitch and mounted my Warn XD9000i on a removable carrier for dropping and dragging logs for firewood. That said my current setup is much to low for any real trail use in my opinion. Attached a pic with the bike rack installed for reference...
