Default Winch for 2003 Ram 1500 4x4

Hi All,

I'm looking for recommendations for a winch to mount to the Go Rhino 3000 series bumper guard. I'll be using it mainly for pulling cut logs and tree branches. Nothing to heavy duty, but pulling an occasional car out of a snow bank might be a possibility.

Are the winches removable or permanent installations?
30 ft of cable good enough?
Recommended motor HP?

Any other advice would be appreciated...

Cheers,
Mark

I'd love to hear feedback on winches also! I have a 2017, but I assume most of the advice ya'll have for winches would transcend model years/generations.

Default Winch Choice

Being at best a casual user of this winch accessory, and considering how often I will use it vs the cost of these things, I've decided to go with the 9000lb pull Harbor Freight winch for $279. It got pretty good feedback from users. I'd prefer to mount it on the front of my truck, but like the portability of the trailer hitch mount. I'll have to think on this a bit though to see what's involved in getting power to a trailer hitch mounted winch. I'll probably pull the trigger on a purchase before the end of the year. I'll post more then.
