You definately will want at least an 8000LB although if you're in the mud or doing long pulls a 9 or 9500 is nice. 5000 would barely cut it on a samurai.

agreed... Don't go anything less than 8000 lbs. A 5k model just isn't strong enough for a Tacoma.

But it could make a good rear winch if it is placed on a receiver bracket and attached to a 5k lbs trailer hitch.

If it's that cheap, take it. You can always use a snatch block to help it along
