Thinking about getting a winch. Maybe 8000 lbs? Any recommendations? Won't be doing too much with it just incase i need it when I go off roading a bit or something

I like my quadratec q9500i with synthetic which is priced at 500 or can be had for 350 with steel cable. Works great for anything other then everyday use.

The engo tested well in a side by side competition. MAny will also tell you Warn. I would go with the syn. rope, whatever you get.

IMO nothing less than a 9.5k...a loaded JKU for a weekend can top 6k lbs..their are pros and cons to steel-syn rope..wheel in ice and snow, mud..get steel.

A common way of figuring out how much winch u need is 1.5 times the gvwr of your vehicle. If gvwr is 6000 lbs then minimum of 9000 lb winch is suggested.
