Typically you want 1.5 times the weight of your truck. That would put you at a 12,000 pounds. I would go with a 9,000 pound since they are a lot cheaper and you can always throw snatch block on an pull 18.000 if you really need to. I'm sure line speed will be a lot quicker with a the 9000. I think worm drive will be faster than the planetary gear setup. I believe most winches have the same mounting spacing for the bolts so you could change it later on.
