First post - Welcome to JF

Usually for a rig of this size and weight - I say no less than 8K.

Yeah a 8k winch is pushing it for a stuck KJ.I run a 9500lbs winch and that may not be enough for my KJ,though I've never had to use it for self recovery yet.

Not to hijack this thread but are there any portable hand winch that could work?
