So i got a really good deal on a Ramsey platinum 9500. Is this winch going to be too heavy for the front of my Jeep? Its completely stock except 31's. When i set it on the front it sags a good .5 of an inch. This is normal right?

It's normal. I put .75" coil spacers to level my jeep when I added bumper/winch.

The sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go "Baa". -Lt Col Dave Grossman
A winch rated for 9500 lbs. is fine for a TJ, that's what I am running. You can install a 1/2" or 3/4" polyurethane spacer on top of the front springs to compensate for its weight, a commonly done thing.
