Nifty rack! I may have to make something similar. What size is the winch and what gauge/length wire are you using to your power point? ... or power point to battery?I've been stuck where the only way out was winching from the rear. We were riding alone and it was a 15 mile walk down the mountain. If that sounds like a even a slight possibility for how you ride, mounting a winch where it can only pull you forward is kind of foolish. If you always have help, a front mount works.
I put my winch on a hitch shank, with receivers front, rear and on the gear rack. Remote control relay is also mounted on the winch. Plug and pull, from either end. The hitch pin locks, so the winch is also protected from thieves.
