Hi I'm after some help i have just purchased a 2011 Nissan Patrol 3.0 turbo diesel. The car came with the factory steel winch bar. Looking at the mounting holes I'll have to mount the winch upside down so the rope can spool freely. Is it ok to mount my winch upside down?

Just have one of those Dominator ones from supa centre. I’ve used it about 4 times and it works great.
