I've also been reading a lot of the posts talking about winches. I'd like to put a winch on my '95, but I a afraid the extra weight would change the handling characteristics of the vehicle. One consideration, and I haven't seen it ever, would to make a lightweight channel iron bumper on the front and back that had some sort of receiver hitch that would allow the winch to be located either on the front or back, interchangeably or not on the vehicle at all if I was doing in town driving. Does anyone have any design ideas along those lines? I'd love to buy a bumper that had that capability. I happen to have a "spare" milemarker 12,000 lb hydraulic winch in my garage. From what I read, the stock power steering pump doesn't power it that well and others have used a chevy power steering pump. How difficult of a swap is the chevy power steering pump?
