    w00t! x-over rules! I remember the last time I wheeled on non-xover... man that sucked. So many times the front susp got flexy and I had absolutely no control over which direction I was headed... it pretty much went the direction the ruts wanted me to go. Not very cool at all! Once you got your hydro, it gonna be time for rock crushers? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Ive never seen a warn UHMW-PE fairlead... Ive seen ones that are the same shape but made from steel or aluminum... but never seen the UHMWPE one. <shrugs> Personally, unless the warn one was a lot cheaper, I'd rather deal with sky. Here is a link to em...

    http://www.sky-manufacturing.com/

    "new products" section has the skinny on em... good idea for winch rope users. That would suck to fray/break your cable on a steel fairlead that is designed to be used with steel cables... not to mention that they are lighter and cheaper than the steel or Al ones...

    Warn does not make a UHMW style Hawse Fairlead. I do know we are developing a synthetic rope compatible Fairlead right now to go with the new synthetic rope we just came out with.

    A standard roller fairlead will work fine with synthetic rope already though...

    they are $25 i think... only color I saw was black... the color all off-road rig stuff should be anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    AFA winch rope goes, it definitely requires that you take more care with the line... have to have/use some sleeves to protect it from fraying on sharp rocks and schtuff. Other than that it looks like a quality product to me. The won't-cut-you-in-half-when-it-breaks feature alone makes it well worth having...
