Yup, that's what sitting on top of the winch, sync line and extension. Based on the 'highly' I'm guessing there's a story there...12.5K should be more than enough.........I had this size on my old heavy diesel and it did fine
I HIGHLY suggest not using a steel cable and getting a synthetic rope.....much safer and much easier to use
Easiest way is to get an intercooler that mounts above the stock location.4. Ecoboost with a winch is a pain due to the intercooler. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to handle this.
