Re: Winch recommendation

Hi Brent,
The recommendation is at least 1.5 times GVWR. The FJ is rated at 5330 to 5570 GVWR. The 8000 winch is right at that point.
We tend to overload with gear beyond the rated GVWR but get away with it because we upgrade suspension and tires.

The upshot is I recommend the 9500.

Snow005m.jpg With the snow we’ve been getting in the mountains lately, a lot of four-wheelers are itching to fire up their vehicles and go plowing through the white stuff.

Re: OAUSA Net – 10/26/17 & 11/2/17 – Destination Camping in the Mojave Desert
