Install-- 10" Double Thick Hawse Fairlead, 3/8" X 80' Diamond Line Winch Rope

Our good friends and customers, Makenzie and Adam, decided that they were ready to take the plunge and convert from steel cable to synthetic winch rope. We suggest that everyone transitioning from steel cable should upgrade to a Billet Aluminum Hawse Fairlead and Synthetic Winch Rope.

Here is a photographic walkthrough of our installation.

They are running a Smittybilt 9500 XRC on their rig. We suggested they go with our 10" Double Thick Hawse Fairlead and 3/8" X 80' Diamond Line Main Line.

1. First we needed to remove the hook from the end of the steel cable.

2. Next we unspooled the steel cable. It is very important to use gloves when working with steel cable. This is one of the many drawbacks to using steel cable. It has burs and can cause you to injure your hands.

3. Now we can remove the set screw (or retainer screw) that is holding the steel cable to the winch.
