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.

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.
