Default Front hitch mount winch, pros and cons

In a recent tech article on our website Front Hitches: Multiple Uses for Your SUV or Truck we covered front mount hitch receivers. They can serve various purpose, and one of the options is a hitch mount winch that fits a 2" receiver. It's pretty convenient if you don't need to carry a winch all the time (for daily commute for example). This way your winch is not exposed to the the weather elements and can maintain good shape for a long time.

What are your thoughts about this winch installation method? Any pros/cons?

Sounds like a good idea though I think a winch bumper would be a lot better.
