    dang that darn rope is $pendy sometimes. I guess if u can afford a $800 winch though... another $150-250 isnt doing much more damage. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    The only bad things I can of are the fact that it frays real easy and it breaks down when it's exposed to UV rays, but other than that it kicks arse...

    UV is no biggie, put some sort of cover on your winch's spool-o-rope... as to the part that sticks out the fairlead? np, add some tube nylon to it, it'll help against abrasion too.

    DO NOT forget to get the abrasion sleaves. Rockstomper has some of the best, they can be put on the rope and spooled into the winch. That, or find some fire hose......

    I saw one rope fail at the Johnson Valley ProRock because the guy didn't have an abrasion sleave. All he did was tension the rope over a rock. The little tiny bit of stretch the rope has was enough to fray it to the breaking point.

    yeah, it wouldnt be hard at all to make your own anti-abrasion sleeves, get some beefy as hell canvas or some other material, wrap it around the rope where u want it, and have mom sew the new material together so you can slide it where u need it on the winch rope. presto! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
