Hopefully this will make sense. I just bought a 12,000lbs winch and was needing some suggestions on a good receiver hitch mount plate to attach it to. The plan is to use it on my ranger I only drive off road and my trailer, which i still need to make a mount for. But so far I've found a few that say they're good up to 12,000lbs but since this winch weighs so much I guess my main question is about the handles. Wouldn't a curved handle be harder to move around since your hands would probably slip to the highest point in the curve and cause your fingers to somewhat smash together verse a straight handle one? Or would a round one be easier to hold a little on the sides of if you're already stuck and install in from in the bed? I might be overthinking this but it's what I first thought of looking at different mounts.
