Most Jeepers don't realize it is way easier to pull yourself out the same way that you went in. Front pulling just makes you a giant bulldozer clearing the path for others. But sometimes you can only go forward, there's no by-pass and u have a line of rigs behind u.

No no no, never ever put a winch cable under a truck and use it :p What I meant was I saw someone do that once and TORE UP their whole drivetrain BUT there is a way to winch yourself backwards with a front mounted winch.

I think you run the cable forward around a tree, and then using snatch blocks make a triangle with the last tree behind ya and it pulls backwards but im not really sure.
Think hard about that for a second..... Makes no difference where the final spot is to secure rope, winch is still pulling toward first tree anchor.
