I think you’ll need some bigger D ring shackles. ;)

Is your goal self recovery or recovering of others?

For self, your need a 16k+ winch. The general rule of thumb is 1.5x your rigs weight. A good 8k might do it if you’re double lining it, but then you’ll need to get even more complicated if that’s not enough. At least with a 16k, then double line gets you 32k. If 32k won’t do it… then you’re really in trouble.

Those shackles are a 12t, and a 13.5t.

Just trying to be somewhat prepared for whatever....

I am running a 12k winch. Hence, the many snatch blocks.
