    May I ask where you guys are getting your strappping for your winches? Or do you have an idea of a good place to grab some?

    Also how are you attaching it to the "spool" of the winch? Just getting it started and letting it double over on itself??

    i would go to harbor freight and get a ratchetstrap and just eliminate the ratchet 1/2 , the other end will already have a hook on it and just double it over like you said your only using a couple feet at a time for plowing and the one i have is an easy 10 feet so it would still get ya unstuck if you hook up to another wheeler.

    I used the Warn strap that is actually made to lift the plow. It came with the old Warn electric lift actuator. It is Warn part #68191 and includes the "D" ring, it is $21 @ Montana Jacks. Plowed 4 storms so far and no issues. I attached it to the drum with duct tape and wound it up, keeps tight with no problems.

    Mine is an old ratchet strap. Works pretty well so far. I cut the end down far enough to slide through the set screw.

    I keep hearing about this "set screw"... there are no set screws on Warn ATV winches...at least not my RT30.

    I bought a ratchet strap at a auto parts store that was laying in the "all items $10" bin. Cut it to fit and walla. :)
