Default 02 Sportsman 700 where to mount winch???

I just purchased an 02 SP 700 that does not have a winch, I do a lot of mudding and generally need to get winched out once each time riding. A buddy of mine has a SP 400 and his winch is mounted in front of his radiator on a mount, I have also seen pictures of Sportsman's with it mounted inside the upper grill (plastic piece must come out).

Any insight into the best mounting position and/or mounting hardware for this would be appreciated.

and do a simple google search for some bikes like yours with a winch

I know that somewhere I have seen an 02-04 sportsman with the winch mounted high in a spot on the plastic grill that is removable. I hate to pay and extra $90 for a mount plate.

I just put one on mine and it sits on a plate out infront. I was disappointed in the looks but function is in the right place. I can see the winch and when I wind the cable I can wind it even with no overlap and chance at crimping the cable. And up high will be better for the snowplow.
