you will want a 12,000 lb or more rated winch. Nearly all have standard bolt patterns for attaching it to the bumper. Warn is only one option. We went with TuffStuff Extreme but they seem to be out of stock. Check the reviews on some of the 4x4 magazine sites and you will get an idea of the differences in makes. Make sure to check height of the unit vs height in the bumper cavity so you can still use the bumper cover plate.

A fair lead plate, synthetic rope, wireless/wired remote are all very nice to have. End can be a hook or other style component which allows for connection of a hook, strap, pulley, etc. Factor 55 provides such an end.

I have a Warn 9000. Warn under rates their winches. Yes I could have gone bigger but when you win it in a Jeep off road raffle event you don't biaatch. I have two Warns on my crawler 6000 front 8000 rear, another Warn old school upright on my !970 Scout. I chose Warn on my first one and never looked elsewhere. Some rate a high retrieval capability, but as I said Warn supersedes their ratings.

Superwinch Talon 12.5 SR is a great fit with plenty of power.
