One thing, always check local laws about vehicles and headphones. Interestingly, in a lot of states you can't drive on the road while wearing them. I always have a one-ear set for driving (all my cars and trucks have headsets...reasons).
Try a leaf spring shop (seriously). A flat leaf isn't expensive at all. See if you can find someone locally that makes springs and spring packs. I'm pretty certain CC Spring is still in operation here, but it's Texas. Texas lives on big equipment and shops are everywhere.
Any more pics of that front winch mount?
I've been drawing up a few concepts from receivers, to bolt-on's using the OEM shackle points, to full frame extensions. I sort of want to have the ability to mount fore or aft.
And am I not seeing which winch you settled on.
