    Just the essentials and no extra fluff.
    Warn M8 or M8000 is a reliable workhorse. Relatively light too. I’m picking up a Come Up winch this weekend.

    Do a search for "Winch" right here in the Recovery forum. Lots to consider, lots of options.

    For what it's worth, I've never used mine and thought "Boy, I shoulda got a smaller winch". Also, I've seen several synthetic cables snap when being used....go with steel cable. Get a pair of gloves, a tree saver, a couple snatch blocks, and a few shackles and you should be good to go.
