I'm about finished with the center section of my front bumper and I wanted to start looking at ordering a hawse fairlead and some synthetic rope. I dont want to install the roller fairlead since i'm keeping the bumper up tight on the truck, and it probably would drop below the bottom line of the bumper.

any recommendations on a quality (skinny-ish) fairlead? Any particular brand of synthetic rope to avoid?

thanks!

If you ever came to the meetings you would know the consensus is that metal rope is better. :rolleyes:
We had a long discussion about this two months ago.

Hmmm...I was at that meeting and we discussed the pros and cons of each type of line. Over all, for me I think synthetic is better--although I know at times metal could be better--like when having to pull over a rock. There are pros and cons to both.:flamingo:

I am using warns fairlead and the rope that came with the winch. Have yet to do a serious pull with it.

Per our conversation earlier today Matt: IMO if you're going syn, and I believe in this stuff after the past 1-year+ of using it, (from Jereme's referral of same to me a year+ ago) go all the way or stay with steel: Masterpull Superline XD. Cry once.

Thanks Dan! Did you check out the truck before you left? Ray and I are going to finish sanding and buffing the quarter panel to match the rest of the paint. I also have a few more tabs to add to the top of the frame mounts on the bumper. Good seeing you today!
