1.5 times the vehicles weight for a baseline of what your winch should be able to pull is what i've heard. mud sucking you down and getting over a rock can add a lot of weight.

i think, unless i come into money i'll end up with a mile marker 8k-8.5k. mile marker appears to be the most bang for your buck.

I got these 15''x8'' steel wheels (4 of them, the other 2 are under the towels) off craigslist a while ago and my wife decided to have them powder coated semi-gloss black for my birthday.

Changed engine oil and filter, replaced rear brake pads, adjusted hand brake shoes and check all transmission levels.

Only once have I ever needed a snatch block and that was on a F450 that had a huge horse trailer still attatched. I thought my CJ-7 was gonna stretch to a Wagoneer! I think the 8000lb rating on the SB will be fine for the WJ. I just want it for a porta-winch on a reciever mount anyway. Anybody know of any front mount hitches besides the way over priced Warn? It is so simply constructed that I can't believe nobody else is making it.
