I just finished a beefy front receiver hitch for my old Mule.
Presently use it for pushing race cars but it's heavy enough to hold a carrier that would easily hold a deer or small pig.
The plan was for a hinged one that swings down so you can roll the load onto it and lift with a winch.
After seeing TX0303's bed mounted winch, that looks better/easier to do!
I always have the Kubota L35 with bucket if it's too heavy for the Mule.
I used an old 2" receiver from a totaled SUV after I cut the extra stuff off.
I attached it to 4 points of the frame with 5/16" bolts.
2x2 square tubing is overkill with 3/8" wall but it's not gonna bend pushing a 2500 pound dirt SportMod.
It has a piece of rubber bumper from a loading dock on front to absorb the little bumps.
