They have 'em on sale at Harbor Freight right now for about $60 dollars.
Yeah... I've looked at the winch option in the past. I don't have a place to permanently mount a winch but I though about using aircraft cable between two D-rings in the floor and attach the winch to that.

He doesn't have D-rings?
