Which Winch

Most of the guidelines I've seen say the winch line pull should be 1 1/2 times the weight of the truck. Factory curb weight of a Bronco is 5000, which would mean a 7500 (8000) lb winch. Mine weighs 6000, but the Warn XD9000i ($850-1250) I have seems to be geared too high to pull me uphill thru mud. I'm gonna start looking for the Ramsey RE12000 ($920-1400) I've always wanted.
