Default Winch line/cable

Pulled the XD9000 off my FJ40 for possible use on the LX

I noticed when I got the winch off that the wire cable is tweaked in at least one spot so replacement is in order (or I could shorten the cable).

Per Warn the cable is 5/16" x 100' standard (assuming original cable). I assume I should stick with that size and length, or can I go up to 3/8" x 100'? I've been looking at synthetic line figuring if I've got to replace the cable then synthetic might be the better option. I did a search on MUD and sent Warn this question but so far I've come up empty.

Any thoughts appreciated

Personally I'd stay the same and go up 50' in length.

Wes,

you think 150' of 5/16" cable/line would fit? I've looked high and low on Warn's site for the drum capacity and I don't see it referenced anywhere. I was figuring Warn would respond quicker to the inquiry so maybe I'll have to call them direct.

Oh sure, TRY to keep me from spending money!

I'll keep that in mind and thank you very much for the offer

For some reason I'm being pulled to synthetic line but I hope it is not just because it is the "in" thing, looks cool, and I can justify doing so since my wire cable is tweaked.

I take it you went to synthetic? What did you go with?

As for the wire cable...Is it 80' or 100' in length? I may take it off your hands yet just to get the winch back to working shape and decide from there.

For those not familiar with winchline.com - this guy makes super cheap synthetics compared to Warn's etc...

A few guys in my club have run his line for a few years w/o problems.
