too small. 8,000 is the smallest usuable winch i have seen on a jeep, and even than we were using snatch blocks a lot. Penguin_in_a_cj fried a ramsey 8,000 just winching a jeep outa a creek bed, was dug down maybe to the middle of the tire. locked front and rear, 4 low idling, winch still smoked and burned up I wouldn;t say ramseys are bad winches, but that specific one is probably too small for a jeep
