I assume the ball is mounted to the factory frame attachment. Get a small receiver hitch and you can remove the ball and insert a receiver mounted winch on the rear. Of course that means changing the entire front winch setup and converting to areceiver setup on the front and power connections .

You can pull yourself out backwards with a front mounted winch. You need 3 snatch blocks and 3 anchor points though. A lot of the offroad guys have videos available on youtube to see how the whole system works. If you dont have the anchor points you are still SOL.

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

Years ago, the family and I took a trip to the Hatfield McCoy trail system to do some riding. My ATV was rather new at the time. We came to a nice large puddle. The wife and everyone else went around. I stopped, looking at the puddle. The wife ask, "You're not going thru that, are you?"
I replied, " Why not, I have 4wheel drive, I won't get stuck".

Needless to say, the puddle was deep and it started to float. It ended up stalling. Drained the water and finally got it running. Started smoking a few weeks later and had to have it rebuilt. The wife never let me live that down.
