Winch Questions

I am looking at buying a winch here shortly. Problem is that I dont know what kind is good quality and what specs is needed. HELP!!!

I will be getting a front tow hitch and a rear tow hitch then i can move the winch from front to rear whichever is needed. So anyone with any suggestions is greatly appreciated and if anyone has a rear or front tow receiver for sale lets talk.

Jeez....$512. That sure makes my $20 come-along look like gold! I can think of about 500 other things I could do with $500...including doubling my money if I wanted to hard enough!
