    What do you guys use for a winch lead? My cable always wears out near the end from repeated use. I just shorten it keep using it but it really solves nothing. I have seen some cordage like end leads out there. Any good experience with the same issue?

    Strap is the way to go. I picked up a cheap tow strap a few years ago, cut it down to 2 10' lengths. It's diluct taped to the drum. Haven't had to use the second strap, the first one still looks and works like new.

    I pull it off in the summer and put the steel cable back on if I decide to go play in the mud.
