DEERE G Yeah, I'm worried about the weight. Not sure if I should be... But I am.
Maybe I'll post up the winch locally. Use the coin to buy a new lighter model.

computeruser Sell that monster winch and get something lighter. FWIW, my Warn M8000 with 80' of 3/8" AmsteelBlue weighs less than 50lbs.

WatchThis! Look at it it this way with a 15,000 you can hang her in a tree if you ever get caught in a flood.

DEERE G I will be sure to post pics. :-)

yjkid95 But wait. You do know pictures of the bumper build and winch mounted are manditory right?

DEERE G Thanks for all the input so far.

I can mount it for sure. The physical dimensions aren't a whole lot bigger.

thewasel I just looked up a quick example of a 'heavy duty' winch and the Warn Powerplant HD pulls 12k lbs and weighs 115lb so, for the 5 extra lbs of weight you will get 3k more lbs pull power...sounds like a good tradeoff! I was just about to buy the Superwinch EPi9.0 that weighs just a bit less than these two...only reason I didn't is I got a good deal on the EPi9.0S (synthetic winch line) If you can mount it, use it!

rbloodhound I would keep the winch that you have. It's paid for.

yjkid95 You know what they say...the bigger the better.

Ramsey Patriot 15,000 winch on my TJ ???

I have a Ramsey Patriot 15,000 # winch. I had it mounted on a 28' gooseneck trailer. I used to pull dead tractors and equipment onto my trailer with it. I no longer have the Silverado 3500 or the trailer. I did keep the winch because I paid almost $1600 for it.
My question is, should I mount this big winch on my 98' TJ? It weighs 120#.
I keep seeing these 8-9000# winch deals pop up online. Should I sell the big 15,000 Ramsey and buy a smaller winch due to size and weight.
The Warn M8000 I see posted now on sale weighs a lot less at 75#. Let's hear some opinions and valid points on keeping my current winch or buying a new smaller one.
I am currently designing new bumpers that I'm going to build. I can build around either winch.
Thanks in advance ....
