I mounted the winch on the wall. then I used small pullies to hold the cable at the top of the wall & the ceiling. I made the t-bar from 1" thin wall tubing, then I use 1 motorcycle strap under the top @ the back of the door opening & 1 coming down the back hooked to the lift gate latch. I also made one @ Silver Lake that slides into a Reese style hitch so a top can be taken off anywhere. Works good but not a good idea to try to move one hanging from it.
