What capacity winch should I get to pull a Smart car onto the bed? Smart tips in at 2000 lbs.


Based on the math involved, angles, winch cable wraps etc. minimum size would be 2000# unless using a snatch block.  Go bigger like Jim says like a 4000# so no worries.  Not that much more expensive.  I have an 8000# Warn which is way overkill but I found a deal where it was priced the same as a 4000#.
