i have to mount my warn 8274 soon, too many trails i want to try but wont without a winch, but i dont have a lot of room to mount it.

im wondering if anybody has ever mounted it laying down instead of standing up? i would like to mount it standing up but im afraid its going to block airflow through the radiator...
anyone have any pictures or any advice on mounting it any other way than standing up, or is this going to be a waste of time?

thanks

The body is going to take up the same space either way. I figure the drive and motor are not the big an air blockage.

I figure you lie it down and it won't lube the gears propperly and it will burn out after a few pulls.
