Winch not mounted to car / portable winch : overlanding

Has anyone ever attempted to use a winch while it’s not mounted on the car using bolts and a proper winch plate etc but instead take it out when needed and connect using tow straps or similar? Power would still come from the car battery and the rest would work as normal.

Talking about a proper 9,000-13,000lbs winch here.

Here’s a quick sketch to illustrate my thinking.

Has anyone ever tested this in practice or are there any other concerns why this would be a really bad idea?
