18Nov2003 (UTC -7) Howdy, I need some advice on synth winch ropes. The Warn 9500ti calls for 5/16" rope with a length of 125ft. Amsteel Blue synthetic rope of same specs has a rating of 13,700lbs. My FZJ-80 will weigh about 6,500lbs, fully laden, and will be in very muddy/sticky situations. Should I go instead with 3/8" synth rope that is rated at 20,400lb. just for extra insurance? If yes, how long can I have it? And lastly, ??? have you had good service/sales/prices with either of these two shops: http://www.rockstomper.com/catalog/recovery/ropes.htm http://www.okoffroad.com/stuff-winchrope.htm Or should I hold out for those Warn synth ropes that they announced on SEMA 2003?
