so.. in the next month im gettin my jeep lifted or gettin a winch.. i decided that the lift could wait that what id need first is recovery.. so the winch..the question is what would be the right one..

im not tryin to spend alot of money on on.. my price range is 500-700$ for the winch..

thats a 6000 lb winch listed at 600


a 9000 lb winch listed at 580..

when i do get my lift.. im gonna get a 4 in suspension lift and im gonna run at most 33s

would the 6000 lb winch be enuff for my jeep after the lift/tire upgrade? or should i go for the 9000 lb winch

and if u guys have ne better ideas on a winch.. like a better winch for around the same price range.. plz lemme kno =p

Just my opinion, but I think 6000 is too small. I'd get an 8000.

Get at least the 8000lb one. The warn m8000 is a nice setup. Also don't forget to figure in the cost of the mounting plate.
