Re: 10,000LBS Superwinch $413.56

Where are you finding synth rope for 180? The only $180.00 synth line I've seen is 80ft and 5/16". You really should go with 3/8" as a minimum. That is what comes on the EPi and makes it an even better deal. If you do go with Steel, always make sure to have heavy duty gloves in your FJ as well as a heavy blanket or a damper so the wire rope doesn't take out a windshield.

If you can't afford it, you can't afford it. IMHO synth is far safer to use on the trail.

You do have a good valid point about safty. Above is the synth rope I found for 189.00 but if you call they will give it to you for 180.00. It does not say on the site what the dia is.

FJinCO did you guys ever use a snatch block with Synthetic line? Any particular block work better for it? I have only used steel.

Re: 10,000LBS Superwinch $413.56

I snatch block all the time. You don't have to worry about diameter like you do with steel. I have an ARB snatch block. It is a good idea to inspect the snatch you are using for any abrasive marks that a previous steel rope could have made.

As for that smittybilt winch line. I would stay away, it's most likely 5/16th" and thus right on the money for synth pricing. Only 10k lbs limit too, 3/8" will get you up around the 17k range.

Funny, in all the overhead rigging I do for work there are a lot of rules and standards that we must follow and different specs that rigging supplies have to meet. Vehicle recovery does not have any specs, only guidelines.

Cool. Thank you for the reply. I have a Warn from a show that I got with no marks.

Mr.FJT Congrads! Winch is some of the best insurance you can buy.
