Me and a couple of others on the site, use a front reciever with a bar mounted winch (though I don't have my winch wired yet)... Allows you to move from the front to the back depending on needs...

I have the portable winch with a custom front hitch using the tow hook holes. I have seen others using the tow hook mounts for a permanant mount. Others have modified existing front receivers from mfgs such as hidden hitch since they were "too low" and cut down on approach angles and such
