    I've got a brand new spool sitting in my garage, I don't want... I'd sell it for $50 plus the ride! Let me know! I'm not sure if it's 5/16th or 3/8th... It is for a Warn 12,000LB winch, that's all I know! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I went to the winch rope and I love it. A little pricey at first but I think it was worth it.

    That's why I have this spool in the garage... It came with the winch when I got it, but I haven't finished fixing the motor and plan on going that route later anyway... Right now it's sitting in the garage acting like a side table... Works great for Beer! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Here is just an idea of the price, not saying you should buy it here! I haven't shoped around for it yet, but I do know that you need a new fairleed if you go this route! Here you go:

    synthetic winch rope is the chit!!! Im gonna run it for sure. So long as you watch out for abrasion and such, its way better than steel cable... much safer and much much lighter.
