    Ya ought to pull it back out and wind it up with tension on the cable. Loose winding can cause the cable to cut into the underlying layers and damage them, at the least it can get jammed up easily!

    Much agreed, just tie off to something on flat ground and let the winch pull the truck in neutral, its a crucial step..

    yeah I wheeled with a guy that has a warn 9.5... it was a spagetti mess.... he looked at my winch cable and was like.. aww that is so neatly wrapped....

    but when he pulled his out.. it was a cluster... and a pain to pull out...

    so we used mine... when he pulled it he was amazed at what 7/16" x 90' looked like :haha:

    he was like HOLLY FRICKEN THICK BATCABLES!!!!!
