I personally would go with NOTHING less than a 3.0.

I have a Warn 4.0 on my Can Am 800 Max and some of my buddies told me that it was overkill. Not ONE of them said that again when my buddies 400 Actic Cat 4x4 fell thru the ice and it took me 45 minutes of breaking ice to get him to a safe place.

Better to have a little MORE juice than to ''wish'' you had more when you really need it.
