    Alright i am looking for a good winch to put on my luv, bear in mind it only 2600lbs. What do you think would be a good one (are Ramsey 8,000lbs ones any good?). Thanks for the help.

    You could get away with a 6000 pound one I bet. Like a Sammy.

    I personally have a 8000 lb ramsey. It was a good deal brand new with roller fairlead, remote, cable, hook, and battery cables for $500. If I was you, I'd remember that usually you are gonna be pulling everone else out. Get something faster too. I'd go for a HS 9500 by warn.
