I finally got around to getting some synthetic winch line, after looking for a while I decided to go with the Master-Pull XD. It costs more but I don't think there is any better out there. Thanks to Phil D at Trailduty
for getting it headed to my doorstep on the big brown truck!
A few cool things about the XD line:
-Powder coated crush proof tube thimble
-3ft. Rock Guard w/ Velcro
-10ft. heat protector for the bottom layer of the winch drum
-Drum link w/ screw for drum
Got the old stuff off and changed out the fairlead to a new PolyPerformance aluminum one that has a little personality, it is my personal statement to JKF... right out front.
While I was at it I decided to move my windshield lights to the front bumper....
I ordered a neoprene cover for the winch to keep everything out of the elements and hopefully prolong the life.
One question about the Warn Powerplant - it is my first winch with thermal protection, when spooling on the new line the damn thing would cut out about ever 10-15'.. is that normal? I mean FAWK..... it was cool outside (~40) and the winch was not under any load.
