I am thinking of purchasing a winch and mounting it to a 2x2 tongue and thus
be able to use it by attaching it to the rear receiver on several different
vehicles. Does anybody know of a quick connect for the very heavy welding
cable I will have to run from the battery to the receiver hitch area on
several vehicles? ANY suggestions on this entire procedure would be
appreciated.

My suggestion would be to use the same kind of connectors used with a
snow plow. They are plenty heavy duty to handle the amperage, easily
connected and disconnected (push together and pull apart) and they are
"idiot proof". You would be unable to cross connect the wiring. Use
dielectric compound (electrical grease) and you should be good to go IMHO.

Don't know the current rating but, Warn sales a quick disconnect designed
for up to 9,500lb Warn winch.

Here is what you need.

These came with my Warn multi-mount winch. I have one set on the
front and one set on the rear of my F-350 and the same on my son's Dodge
pickup, thus greatly increasing the utility of my winch. I'm in the
process of adding them to the front and rear of my Rubicon. I also
purchased jumper cables from Warn that use these connectors. Very useful.

Seconded. Powerpole connectors are the way to go. Pick the size you
need for your amperage, spend the money and just do it. I don't
remember seeing the big ones at powerwerx, but I've purchased powerpoles
online from at least one of the normal industrial supply places --
grainger, mcmaster-carr, mcm electronics, etc.
