I took the tow hooks out, put the hitch behind the front crossmember and secured it. Bought a receiver that you would put a ball in and tow a trailer, and welded it to a winch mount from a ram bar. Yes, I call them Ram Bars haha. Then just hooked it all up.

I'm sure my roomate will get stuck with his 2wd again next time we go trailing hehe

I saw a coupon in a recent Truckin' magazine that allowed the purchase of a 3000-lb winch for $49.99 ...

Well this one is mostly for pulling ppl out of the ditch, myself if I get stuck (rarely happens) and my roomate when he gets his 2wd ranger stuck (always happens) lol
