2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite
I've been researching winches for the KL the past few months and came across and interesting question. I plan on going with the frog fab winch mount, so that is leaning me toward the Warn VR EVO winches since they recommend the 8S. I plan on going with synthetic line to save as much weight as possible. That being said, other than cost, is there any reason to get the 8K vs the 12K? I pulled Warns spec sheet and the 8/10/12 all have the same dimensions and same weight when using synthetic line. The 12S does have a slightly higher gear ratio, and I would assume the clutches would correspond to the correct rating for each model. In Florida we have a lot of thick mud, so would rather have more winch then not enough. I also generally have more than enough spots to pull from, so running a snatch block if needed would generally also not be an issue.
