What size of winch?

What size of winch does everyone run on their rig? Just bought a 2016 JKU and I'm building a front bumper. Just a stubby and it won't be fancy but if I can save the money from buying one and buy a winch with that. I was thinking 8 or 9k just to keep cost down and just make sure I have snatch block. And that falls within the norm 1.5 times vehicle weight.

Re: What size of winch?

Get a 9k, make your own 5/16 winch line, and use a block on all your pulls. The line is minimum 9k tensile strength, the winch is the same, and you get more line on the drum to use the block with. You'll hear everyone tell you your jeep is inadequate, but trust me, you get used to it. And it's fun proving people wrong.
