Should look the same on every raptor. Also both the front and rear winch mounts don't really allow access to the manual clutch release. So really there is only one winch to use I believe.

When I got my ATV stuck in a shallow muddy riverbed years ago, buddy of mine recommended I get a winch. But he said you need front and rear cause usually you going to want to get back out of what you got into. I got the type that inserted into a modified trailer hitch front and rear, with electrical harness in each place. It was a pretty cool setup.

I’d recommend a winch tray to attach to rear hitch. You can pull it off when not in use and I believe will attach to trailer harness for power. Use a wireless controller

This. I never understood why you'd want a winch mount that you cant work the clutch.
Correct and just to be clear on my post. Warn makes a winch with a remote activated clutch, which is what he uses in his video. On the rear winch mount he has a debris shield that basically fully encloses the winch. Only option I know of is the warn winch used in the video.

Sometimes you have to think outside the box.
