There's no better insurance policy than buying a quality winch.

Both I suggested run around 300 for cable if you go with rope it will cost more but be less dangerous and a lot lighter

I was researching the hell out of all the good winchs, 1 of the problems your going to find with something that HD is, its soooo heavy your going to need to re adjust your head lights. Rule of thumb, the winch needs to be able to pull 1 1/2 times its GVW. I have a superwinch lp 8500 from q-tech 300.00

so you hit over 450 HP and over 500ftlb just last week while naturally aspirated on a motor that you plan on putting turbos on?????? That would mean that you have a low compression ratio making that kind of number???? Youre full of it. Point blank with a stock stroke 2.5 bored an extra 500cc with low compression you cannot hit the numbers period. No matter what happened if you payed for a dyno pass (which you claim you did) you have paperwork. Scan it or take a cell phone pic of it and post it.
Before you go any further with number claims,google this

The motor is far from stock and it has dual turbos on it already im having them remanufactured with new bearings and all bc i blew a turbo when i was in the dyno test bc i lost oil pressure from a faulty oil pump and blew the motor once thats y its being rebuilt in the first place give me a month and ill prove you all wrong and im lookin forward to having a new car lmao

Hold on it's being rebuilt now? I thought you just had it on the dyno less than a week ago? None of your claims match up. You make comments like "It's far from stock" Prove me wrong, go ahead. I think you will be sadly dissapointed. Youre niot talking to your average jeep enthusiasts. I've been around stoked motors, turbo motors, supercharged motors and nitous motors since I was about 11 years old I'm now 30. Even with a twin turbo set up I still say you won't get more than about 290 at the rear wheels and thats perfectly tuned.
So what kind of trans due you have? Axles? etc. Stock trans being an auto or stick will blow apart at 290 rear wheel. I guess they'll be "far from stock" too. You say youre going to use an atlas. Ok Atlases with tehir extreme ratios are meant for crawling but to reach the numbers you are talking your looking at a 7000-9000 rpm power band depending ons etup, which is not for crawling.
