2k lbs winch is for ATVs dude.
Go much higher, go with a minimum of 8k lbs of dead weight single line pull.

To parrot the other 2 smart dudes, you couldnt pull your jeep out of a 2" deep mud puddle w/that winch. 8k is as small as I would go.

anywhere you want to.
It's no Warn, but here's a Smittybilt 8000lb with the synthetic line for about the same price.

vertical roll bar right behind drivers seat, they make holders to strap to the roll bar and hold a fire extinguisher... with a winch the rule is you need at least 2 times the weight of the vehicle it will be used on
