Re: winches
Your alternator will be fine, it's no different than powering a 1000w amp. WARN winches have my respect for quality and endurance, check them out.

Re: winches
8000 lbs is not enough for a WK. min is 9500 lbs.

Re: winches
He has a ZJ which weights less than the WK, 8000 is enough for straight pulls. It's always a good idea to have a snatch block to double the pulling power for those moments.
