|dkeven||actually at worse you will overload the wire making it an element which burns the covering and starts a fire.|

I think you can get by with #2/0 gauge wire for an 8,000 lb winch.
Not sure what gauge you're holding up. At worst Your winch will bog down under strain of a pull from the loss of amps due to a less than recommended gauge wire. I'd go 4/0 for an 11,000 winch.

|05wrangler||how man amps does your winch call for? depending on the amp rating and the type of wire used you can figure out what size you will need|

|tabber02||i thought you wanted the same gauge as a battery cable. but i'm not 100% on that one....|

Will this work for a winch?
Will this be able to carry the current needed to operate a winch safety or should I go thicker??
