sorry about no updates, i don't really have time during the week to do much jeep work because of homework/school/work. so i haven't had the chance to try to pull the drum off, but i have done some research and shopping on how to rebuild it for the absolute cheapest, i think when all said and done i will have a like new warn winch for 350 not including the price of synthetic rope though.

i will have more pictures and updates on it tomorrow night or saturday!

280 from 4wd for the 5/16th line that has 100 foot of line with a hook on it and crush proof thimble too... or you can buy it from quadratec for 220 without the hook. i'm just not sure if 100 ft of line is enough hence i have never used a winch, i mean i would assume it is though cause in SC trees are... EVERYWHERE.

also not really sure if i should go with 5/16 or 3/8th. any suggestions?

If you're planning on buying an Amsteel Blue line, I'd just order it directly.
250ish for a 100', 3/8" line with hook:
http://www.amsteelblue.com/results.cfm?catid=1805

In my opinion, it pays to err on the thicker side when it comes to synthetic line. While it's safer, it can generally be inherently easier to damage. The way I see it, if you fray a 3/8" line a little, you still might have 5/16" of material. The thinner you go, the less material you have to work with. That being said, I'm a fan of the synthetic lines and I see one in my future. My fraying 5/16" steel line is scary. As far as length is concerned. I'd say 100' is plenty. I believe my line is 85' and I've yet to use all of it. I do carry two 30' tow straps just in case though. I personally couldn't justify a $300 price tag for a 125' line when you can get a 30'x4" strap off of amazon for $25 shipped. However, it's up to you to decide what length you prefer.

thanks for the input man, i definitely think i'm going to go with the 3/8, just seems like the way to go. The link will be very helpful to save me money , hopefully will be getting some of that line soon

Glad I could be of help. If you find a better deal on quality line let me know. I'll be upgrading in the future.

Ya I havent been able to justify it yet either haha which is why I havent gone syntehtic yet But after seeing the price for a 100' I may have to do that. Good looking out on that deal Kyle.

But like the point you made I'd rather err on the longer side since I've been know to go a little too far.

a problem you run into with too much line is that one you loose winch power, and two if you can't get a good angle and can't wrap it on the winch correctly it will wrap up faster on the one side faster.
