a good 9.5k winch should be more than enough, unless you are planning to go big and heavy. You have to consider the weight of the winch too. A lot of people go to 12k winch because they say yeaah biggeeer betteeer. But that's also a lot heavier!. So if your jeep is going to be on the light side, a 9.5k winch will save you some weight and keep you within your weight limits. If you are building a dedicated crawler, going big tires, bigger axles, armor everywhere, etc... then a heavier and stronger winch makes sense.Just bought my 1st wrangler and am prepping it for next year. How much of a pulling power of the winch should I get? Is 9500 lbs enough?
