Yes, I know where there is an FMTV with the mid mount hydraulic winch: can winch out either end. But I'm thinking "Modern tools for modern times" and go with the Warn electric, 24 volt option, 18K or so. Probably will put it on the back just because, on the trail, I know where I came from was good [/QUOTE][QUOTE="
If you can find a hydraulic pass through winch off of a FMTV .
Agreed, I am thinking one on the front and one on the rear would be most ideal.
