So has anyone used the sleeves for crimping your cable? I couldnt
find the ubolts that I usually use, Do you just crimp them hard in a vise or what?[?][?]

i think you have to use a press. i just used the u-bolt style and it seems fine to me. i got mine from home depot. try rona. although you prob already know but if you use a u-bolt "never lassoe a dead horse"










They dont call me the Swank for nothin

Sorry bro...... that's Never SADDLE a dead horse. I would be a little leary about getting winching supplies from home depot.....


Try most 4X4 shops or industrial fastener places... Those saddle clips are specifcally designed to be used with wire rope. I watched a cheapy come undone with...... really shitty results. Don't scrimp here... Your life is worth more than a couple of bucks.

I don't mean to sound nitpicky swank and if that's how I came across.... Sorry. Like I said...... bad results from cheap supplies!!

- Sound of the ICBC estimator that decided in the end to put REAL parts back on the Durango!!

If you can get the radius bends to make the end !

The ubolts from P A or home depot will work just make sure you are using the right size for the wire and use at least 2 !


Its almost worth going to a wire rope company and having them put the proper crimp ends on !There are a few around !Neater and smaller then using ubolts !
