Sepson 12,000 lb winch

There's a Swedish brand (Sepson) winch available for a very good price, but its a 12,000 lb winch. Is it too big for the Jeep? Of course, I don't know if it is manufactured in Sweden or elsewhere, but the price is right. Repair parts could be a challenge if needed at some point, I suppose.

Sounds like reason enough not to buy it, IMHO.

I use a 12K winch; and when I have had to use it, I am glad it is not any smaller. Would a smaller one do the job?? Probably. Will the 12K have to work as hard as an 8K?? Definately not. I also use a snatch block to cut the load in half!! Much easier on the winch and line.
Happy Jeeping
