...Should I dig to bury my Comanche in?

Nah, I'd just burn it instead. What I really need to know is what the proper size for the hole behind a winch fairlead for the cable to pass through?


Should it be as big as the rectangular part of the fairlead that holds the rollers (11x4.5 or something)?

Or should it be smaller, and more like just the size of the slot between the rollers, and a bit extra so the cable doesn't chaf?

a little bigger than the oopening for the fairlead.

the fairlead is what guides the cable, so you vcan make the oepnng as big as you want.

I'd split the difference, use the center to center measurement from the top and bottom rollers and the roller width plus 3/16" to 1/4" per side.
