Re: Winch size on CJ
I've had a Warn 6000 lb on my CJ7 since 1986. The only time I ever had to use the snatch block to double the line pull was pulling a 3/4 ton Dodge out of the Gila River that was sunk overnite up to it's doors. But, considering the price difference, I would suggest an 8000 would probably be your best bet. If weight is a real factor, though, a 6000 will serve just fine, I've used mine more times than I can remember.
