Trailer mounted winch

Looking for a good winch that I can use the trailer hitch to mount to the Suburban. I have hitch mounts front and back. The Suburban is a 1994 K2500 4X4 diesel. NOTE: this is a hunting / camping vhicle, not a rock climer. It does need it to be light as possible as I want to stow it inside the back of the Suburban. (Ok, I used to lift weights but that was a long time ago, I'm 60 now.) The Suburban has a 4" lift and Double stack storage compartments that it will be going on top of. I just don't want to kill my self getting it stowed away. I think the Winch will be around 10,000 lb capacity, just would like a good winch, any ideas? Not something that will be used all the time, just a (just in case) thing.

Thanks,

Dave

Even just a change to rope is going to shave weight.
Same as going to a contactor instead of solenoids.
Past that it's just a balance between cost and quality since they'll all be about the same weight

i had a warn one years ago and thats what i used on mysuburban

sorry for the grainy pic but you get the idea


but the only bad thing like you said its heavy but it was nice to take it off if it wasnt in use, also came in handy when a friend went somewhere stupid we could just carry the winch out to him and put it in his rear hitch and pull himself out

harbor freight does have a similar style reciever type winch mount just no idea how good it is

Not light, but I didn't make it for that.
Male receiver at back slides in to vehicle.
Passes through to female at front....that will hold a ball or shackle, and also fits over a spud on the front of the trailer for loading cars. For that, the male at the rear drips into a cradle and hitch pins in.
