Ok Ill be installing an ARB front bumber with an M8000 Warn. I want to dump the wire rope and go synthetic. Any suggestions as to what youve all used?

I know about Masterpull. I just thought Id ask about others.


THanks.

Viking or masterpull are the best brands.The WARN brand is good but extremely pricey.

Thanks guys. Viking doesnt seem to make 5/16" line. I only see 3/8". I want 5/16 because I want 100' of line.

You want 3/8" line anyways.I fitted 100' of 3/8" line on my 9500XP winch that came with 100' of 5/16" steel cable,fits just fine.

Looks like they pulled it off their site. I have 125' of Viking 5/16" rope on my Engo 10k.
