They will last you a VERY long time, well worth the money,,, it won't snag your winch cable on those loooong pulls, and a Hawse will eat away if the cable is pulling to one side of it all the time,,, The roller is definately the way to go, it offers less resistance, plus, they look badass!!!

Just my $0.02
95, 2.5L, custom bumpers, Flow's, 4 inch Skyjacker Super Duty, 33x12.50 MT's, 15X10 AR 767's, Hi-lift, Funk in the Trunk( two 12 inch subs ), soon to be locked and have one of those pully things on the front.

That's a good price for the Warn w/hawse fairlead. A roller fairlead costs $92 at 4 Wheel Drive Hardware. Definitely go for a roller over the hawse fairlead. You'll end up messing up the winch line with the hawse if you pull at severe angles.

8000 w/roller

6000 w/hawse

what about snagging your cable between the rollers on wierd angle pulls?or have some of the roller fairleads been redesigned to eliminate that mess?

Wouldn't it still be a better deal to buy the hawse and then buy a roller fairlead piece and put it on?
