Best winches?

I'm about to pull the trigger on a winch. I don't plan on any serious rock crawling or pulling the entire weight of my ZJ up into the air. Maybe up out of a ditch or up a embankment. Most of the use is actually gonna be yarding firewood up to the road. Does a 4k pound winch have the oomph or is there a reason I don't know about why everyone goes 2 or 3 times their vehicle weight when they select a winch? Im leaning towards the smittybuilt 4k for price reasons but if I gotta go bigger I'm leaning towards the quadratec 9000 pound mostly to keep in line with oe jeep stuff.

Re: Best winches?

And for what it's worth I've done a few aftermarket swaps. And with me in the jeep it weighs in at about 4500 pounds according to the scales at the local dump.
