4500 lbs winch

Any point in mounting a 4500 lbs atv winch on a truck? Truck weighs 4000 gvw 5000. I know it won't pull it out of a mud pit. It will help with dragging fire wood out and light stuck. Don't want to mount a real winch due to weight at space. I do have a 8274 on a cradle for the serious stuff

That total weight is only on the first wrap of cable anything after that it drops so..... Plus usually if yea have the winch u less likely to need to use it but it comes in handy if someone else does
