Cool thanks Chris, good to know. I've pretty much decided to go syn line. After looking at that horozontil piece on the ARB, I think it would only get in the way at a fairly extreme up-angle pull. And given that I'd have to get both a new fairlead and new rollers (probably a hundred bucks all said and done) I'll just pick up a slee fairlead and call it good.

Corey...

Sorry I've been absent the past few days. With the offset Hawse fairlead I haven't seen any issues but then again, I've used the winch very little either

I have Slee's offset Hawse fairlead now and it works great. The hole on the offset fairlead is just a little bit smaller than the hole in the ARB so no risk of the rope touching the opening.

Awesome thanks for the info Jeff! I'm heading down to Slee's in the near future to pick up one of the offset fairleads.
