that sounds like a good deal, but i think a 5,000 would be more adequate for a samurai or something like that. i don't have a winch yet, so i use one of these for now:
i agree with going 8,000 lbs or more. if i get stuck, i want to be certain that it will pull me out. i saw a milemarker 8,000 lb electric winch on ebay with shipping 375. sure, thats not the best winch on the market, but its a whole lot better than nothing.
if you can, try to save up for a nice one. people swear by their warn winches.
