I use a 7,000 lb on my f250--came with the truck. sometimes still need to engage 4 wheel drive to avoid a shovel. If you just want to pull tension so you can cut roots, a smaller one may be useful. We have pulled out everything that we strapped to it so far. Use it to set boulders too. 1 truck picks up the boulder, winch pulls off and sets it in place--done this a few times.
