synthetic line weigh's less (and i think strech's less as well) its the combo of weight + strech that gives steel cable so much energy. I can't say i've seen it just drop, but just the mechanics of it tells me there'd be FAR less energy\danger if\when it snaps. Personally when i'm watching a winch in action, i stand behind a tree, and as close to 90 degree's to the front of the vehicle as possible (it's most likely to come relatively straight back\forward, depending on where it snaps) Call me crazy, but i've always been less scared of the cable then what might be on the end (hook\recovery point) i don't have any real evidence to base this on, but i figure the steel rope we use on winch's isn't all that likely to kill me, but if it launch's a's like a cannon shot

Both my girls rode in the front seat of my old bronco in their carseats at some point while wheeling, but again no air bag. They also used to ride in the back with the top off too though, and never a complaint about wind, they loved it. The only concern I ever had when putting them in the back with the top off was the sun. We used to keep their little Barbie umbrellas in the truck for sunny days when we were stopped in traffic or something
