    I am looking to replace my steel wire cable with synthetic rope soon. I know I will need to replace my roller fairlead because it has a few burs in it. I know most people recommend using a hawse style fairlead with synthetic rope, but the ARB is not really designed for it.

    The ARB bumper has a recessed area for the roller fairlead, and I am worried with a hawse style the rope could rub the bumper with an angle pull. See the picture below, the arrows point to the area I am concerned about the rope rubbing.

    My question is does anyone use a hawse style fairlead on their ARB bumper. If so, what is your experience with any rubbing issues with the rope?

    I'm also considering using these too, and replacing the steel rollers on my current fairlead. Any reviews on these? http://www.amazon.com/Daystar-KU70054BK-Black-Synthetic-Roller/dp/B001P20Y1W

    I have those Daystar rollers installed. No complaints.

    Viking makes a deeper hawse. not sure if it's thick enough for an ARB, but it's a move in the right direction if you don't want to use poly rollers.

    compared to a standard hawse

    I think I'm gonna stick w/ the roller fairlead and just replace the rollers. I'm interested in the Daystar poly ones b/c they're designed for synth rope and I like that they're black.


    did they come with bolts too? my old ones are kinda corroded

    Good grief. :) It's been years since I installed them.

    Pretty sure there were no new bolts; just take your old ones to a hardware store as I bet you could replace them for under $10 (if taking a wire brush to your old ones won't cut it).

    The rollers can be trimmed if they're too tall/wide. I can't remember off the top of my head if I had to trim the long ones (I might have); pretty sure the side rollers were fine.

    A hacksaw should do it. It's just polyurethane. Don't want to create too much heat friction (like with a power tool) and melt the material.

    I went with the thick Viking hawse with some SS fender washers to shim it out slightly further:

    It's still slightly recessed, it has never been an issue for me. My opinion is that if I'm in a situation where need to put nearly a 90° direction change in my line at my fairlead (regardless of whether a hawse or roller), it's time to re-rig with a snatchblock.
