Winch mounting

I'm trying to come up with a way to mount a winch behind my rear seat in my sammi, I tried bolting onto the tub itself but the test proved that it was'nt gonna hold. My idea is to run a piece of steel maybe 3 to 4 inches wide under the rig over the gas tank from frame rail to frame rail and bolt to that, however if anyone has ever attempted this or has any other ideas I could really use the help. I'm new here and recently registered, been browsing the board for awhile now and have gotten alot of good ideas from this site. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

2 ways off the top of my head.

1. cut the floor to mount tubing to the frame rails. not the whole floor, just enough to get the tube to the frame. tie the tubing together in the truck and build your mounts off of it.

2. build the frame to hold the winch, add strapping to it to extend it completely under the rear seat, use the seat mounting holes, use longer bolts to mount the winch bracket and seat back in place.

but why would you want a winch in the back seat?

I used some steel to build a construction which ist mounted in the tub. Left and right it is mounted at the frame, the rear ist mounted with the safety-belt-screws. Up to now it seems like it's very strong.

With extending the cage in a few months I will additionally connect it to the cage.

Mounting in the rear gives a better weight comparing front to rear, at least in mud and at higher speed it's way better than making the front heavier.
