Synthetic winch line protector

Well my jeep is down for the moment so i figured id do something cheap and easy. I got my one inch tubular nylon from strapworks shipped to my door for 20 ft was 13.50 so i figured what the hell. Im sure it will help protect the winchline from the sun and rocks.

it was super easy to install i took 20 ft of coax tv cable and electrical taped the end and fished it thru. Two people make this like a 30 second operation lol .

pretty cool solution.

I thought all synth lines came with protectors on them. Guess I assumed wrong.

it did come with a protector that was only about 8 ft long. when the line is spooled up it left almost half a spool left exposed and my main concern was UV and the effect it will have on the winchline. Now it sould cover the whole first wrap and protect it form the sun
