Re: Winches and front end wieght
My winch added about 80 lbs to the front of my sami and didn't seem to do a whole lot to the handling..and this is with soft YJs aprings, too. I mounted mine permanently, using logic like weirdwillie mentioned. Moving 90 lbs is kind of a pain in the arse in general, but if you are in a stuck position on rocks or something, you might not be able to get the winch into the receiver, and/or you might not be safe trying to climb all over the rocks carrying that heavy thing.
