Off Road

How do I determine which winch I should purchase for Off Road Applications?

Choosing the right winch for your needs may seem complex, but it's actually quite simple. Two pieces of information, vehicle weight and line pull, are required to choose the right winch. To calculate your vehicle's Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW), start with the vehicle's curb weight and then add the weight of the supplies and equipment you'll typically be carrying. The rated line pull of the winch must be high enough to pull your vehicle's GVW while overcoming resistance encountered when you are stuck or on an incline. Ramsey recommends that you select a winch with a rated line pull at least 25% greater than your GVW.
