After some thinking I decided to skip the winch in order to get more clearance.
I started with the tow hooks attached to the frame and built them out to 1" thick by cutting and welding together 5 pcs of 3/16 steel. Drilling the 1" hole was really fun with my cheap mini counter top drill press
I forgot how much work this stuff is. I survived cutting, grinding, and welding in the 3000 degree shop in shorts and a t shirt. Only got burns everywhere.
Here's some pics.
I was scared to cut the body so I built an inset to put an air hookup
