What do you peoples recommend re-spooling my winch with? size, type? Do I just order Aircraft cable from lordco? Ithink it has 5/16 x 100ft on there. Its a superwinch 8500lb.
And no, I cannot afford synthetic this time

for that winch 5/16 is perfect 3/8 would be over kill big time and harder to spool
dont quote me but i believe 5/16 is for 12000 lbs

ok its 5/16 by 100ft thats on there. Am I to order special winch rope from somewhere or just call lordco and ask for 100ft of aircraft cable?
