Ok...one mod i keep thinking about on my Trailblazer is adding a winch either via a bumper or a receiver mount. Now the problem i am not sure about is figuring out just what size of winch i need. I know i need something between 8500-10000 LB rating.

This is one of the winches im looking at:

Mine's a 9000 lb, and I wouldn't recommend any less, unless it's for appearance only. Get the bumper first. The Curt 31055 front receiver mount (I had one) kills approach angle too much.

The approach angle thing was one concern of mine when trying to come to a decision of bumper vs front hitch.

My bumper has a receiver built into it up high, so it's still relocatable.
That is one idea i need to consider! I want to fab up a prerunner style bumper....so going with a high mounted receiver would work and allow me to keep the bumper tighter to the front of the truck.
