Is it possible? I was just sitting here thinking about it. Does the winch keep the cap from being tilted enough to make the mod not worth the time?
 
No they won't tilt forward with a winch. You have to open them up like a regular hood.
 
rr41mag, I used to run around with a fellow who had a glass front on a '74 CJ that did have a full front tilt so it can be done. It was setup with long aluminum hinges that had a rotation point just behind the front bumper, this allowed it to clear the low profile Ramsey winch. I'm sorry that I don't have any pics that show any detail, but he was an experienced machinist by trade and built it himself.
