    Not one spot but a loop through A arms on either side to a Y at winch cable. Tilting flatbed preferred.

    I know you said you need to winch it on, but if it can be driven on, I think that would be preferable. Otherwise, what Bfromla said..... Jim

    I replaced the nuts on the front shock bolts with lift rings available from Amazon. As said create a Y thru the shock bolts to pull with in an emergency. I also carry a tow strap. Never needed to use either.
