what size winch should i get to pull my car up on the trailer?

ProMark Offroad sales some real nice winches for the money. I would recommend 1.5x's your cars weight. So if it weighs 3000 lbs then 4500 lb winch should be plenty. 9000 lb would be very nice though.

4700lb WARN strong and compact, reasonably priced at northern tool

You only need about a 1500 to pull a rolling load much heavier. Theres a chart on warns website that you put your weight in and the angle of the trailer ramp.

I have a wireless superwinch 3500 model I think and it works great.

Go ahead and get the 1500, just get you a cup of coffee cause it's gonna take a while to load up.

I got the wireless superwinch too, I love it.

I think it is a 4000 or 4500, but not sure.

The wireless remote is awsome when loading by yourself.

Got it all at Amazon.com

i have an 8k ramsey, works real nice, however i had a 2500# superwinch 4 wheeler winch that was used to load race cars for at least 6 years, took 3-4 minutes to load car... no big deal really, still worked great when i pulled it off and replaced it with the big one

My Warn 3600 pulls up my 3,000# car with no issues and does it in about 10-15 seconds on an almost dead battery.
