winch size question
« on: Jun 27, 2018, 04:53:08 PM »
Do you think an 8,000lbs winch will do the trick for a 1990 4 runner on 35's?  :psss:

Yes

X2.

If needed, you can double the pulling power of your 8k winch by using a snatch block(pulley) and bring the winch line back to the front of the truck.

Pretty sure the rule of winch is AT LEAST 1.5x your rigs weight .
hold this. . .

Depends on what brand you get. I have smoked more than one cheapo 9500.

I believe in asking people that use their winch.
I have had three winches in My wheeling days. Each one has gotten a work out at one time or another.
#1 Warn XD9000 it was a good winch used it on a Toyota 4x4 running 38.5s never had an issue pulling anything I hooked it to. If I thought it would be a hard pull for it. (pulling out a full size truck) I would use a snatch block.
#2 Warn 9.5Cti in the multi mount setup. same as above except I never had to use a snatch block and it was on the 4runner I have now.
This winch was overkill for what I needed. Competition level winch.
#3 Warn M8000 I have only used it a few times and It seems to Me to be the perfect size.
My only recommendation "stick with Warn winches" there's a reason people love them the most.  :twocents:

I have a 9000I on my 90 4runner, seems to be about right. My truck weighs 4000 lb empty. I did actually stall it once pulling a friend buried in the mud up the frame rails.

Ive stalled my 8274 a couple times.  Its an older motor.  I am going to the 4.5hp motor and contactor setup shortly.

I love the 8274 with the 9.5XP motor upgrade. Only time I've stalled it was when I tripped the line using two snatch blocks to pull a stump out. This is what I used for the motor info

The link above has the goods it looks like.  I went with the Amazon Tempco(i think) contactor instead of the warn or Albright.  For $$ sake.

Both times my winch was stalled i was tugging something stuck to the frame. Once single line and once double lined while pulling a full size extra cab

Stalling a upright is pretty impressive. I have had mine for about a year know and had my 4Ds buried under boulders a few times and it didnít even think about bogging down.

I went with a superwinch solenoid, same design as the Warn and Albright but was around  $100 from summit. I'll see if I can find a part number tonight or this afternoon.
