winch

Hey guys...looking for some help. I have a 2015 f250 and was wondering what size winch would be a good for that truck. Also has anyone done a hidden mount on a 2015 as I would like to keep the stock bumper and just hide the winch behind it if it is possible. Thanks in advance.

would you be pulling your truck out by itself mostly or like truck and trailer combo mostly? I always ran 1.5x the truck/cargo weight and its never let me down yet. so a say a 14k winch or 16k whichever size it more common would be good for a normal f250/f250. Soon as you add a travel trailer or heavy trailer the winch and extra bracing/snatch block will be needed.

I haven't ran WARN's hidden winch but I have seen a dozen in person they looked really good, just a little $$$ for me.

A snatch block, some 10k D rings/clevises, couple appropriately rated recovery straps would be good too.

on my off road rig and the side by side, 2 straps, snatch block, 2 d rings and that's been enough for 99% of winch needs other than say another truck for extra sticky times.

Justin, Thanks for the reply bud. I would most likely just be using to pull other people out or myself. I hooked up to a HD Chevy that was down to the frame in some really soft sand that did not seem to have a bottom and I just sank. Took a tractor to pull us both out and I got to thinking that a winch would probably come in pretty hand in this situation. Not something that I would use all the time but it would be nice to know that I have it in case I need it.

I see. Ya a warn 14k or above and a snatch block will work wonders. I personally run cable vs synthetic rope but do your research and pick the one that best suites you. They each have their pros and cons.
