Warn 9.5k lb winch on CCLB 7.3?

Thoughts? I was considering the Warn multi-mount winch system and the largest capacity they offer is 9.5k. My dodge weighs as much as my F250 does and my work is about to do the multi mount warn with a 9k lb winch. I don't do crazy off roading, mostly mountain logging roads with snow and that. I normally just need a tug to one side to get the *** of my truck back on the trail.

Should I even bother with the multi-mount or go big with a front mount 12k+ lb?

I just like the versatility of being able to stick it on the back if needed.

Thanks -
Scott

I think if you can swing it, got for a large frame Warn or Superwinch winch. There are 12,000 pound winches that are the same size the 9000 warn winches. Those may be fine and rated for 12,000, but compared to a Warn 12,000, they don't even seem to be in the same class. Always could do a cheap Harbor Freight one on a receiver craddle later on if you find yourself needing a rear winch very often. I'll have to see if I can find a pic I took of a MileMarker 12k winch sitting next to a Warn 12,000 winch. Quite the difference!

If you do go with the Multimount, you can always use a snatch block if you need more pulling power.
