You can never have too big of a winch, the load rating of a winch is on the first layer on the drum. A 12,000lb winch would more than meet your needs.

Also keep in mind many winches will outwork the WLL of the cable on the first few layers.

I have 2 snatch blocks in the tool box on the truck for things that may come close to the max on the winch. Snatch blocks might make it a little slower loading, but you won't burn up your winch that way. You can also use them to get the load to where you can bring it onto the trailer when you can't back straight up to it. Just my thoughts, keith

Shoot, I'm just a dumb old Hillbilly that don't like to pull my guts out if I can help it, i'd rather let the winch do it. Guess I'm probably a little lazy too. LOL
