Ed,  having tried many variations, from Kubota /John Deer Tractors,4 wheel 
drive jeeps in creeper gear to good old manual labor, I opted to get a Capstan 
winch ,  AB Chance ( hubble)  
It has installed many a tower rohn 20/25/45/55/65 AB105 and AN towers  and 
antennas of all size and shape.  The control you have with a Capstan hoisting 
device is fantastic as compared to trucks/tractors and the danger of over drift 
of a electric  steel cabled winch !   1/2 in adjustment are now capable making 
life  much easier for the high MAN.  I mount it to the tower most times @ the 
base but on occasion mount it to a custom made tube inserted in the truck 
receiver that can mount and holed both or either the tram lines and the winch.
