    'I'm about to get a 14 ft trailer for my Kubota tractor (total around 4500-5000 lbs), so this is all good information!!! I'll also have the dual axle with brakes.

    So what's the consensus on making your own winch line? Found a nice Warn locally but it's steel and the price of a new Warn line is just... holy shit. Amsteel is so much cheaper and I have to splice in the thimble anyway... would be just as easy to splice the loop in the other end.

    I can't speak to quality, but there's a bunch of winch line on Amazon. So...

    How would the price compare to buying premade amsteel line?

    https://www.hivisoverland.com/products/3-8-synthetic-winch-line?variant=29517159727174

    Or just buy this and pocket the rest. I ordered this in a pinch and ended up returning it since I didn't need it, but I was impressed with the quality of the line, especially for the price.

    Yeah my only worry about Amazon is the questionable quality... I can get 3/8 Amsteel with a 17k WLL for $200 which I'm completely cool with... just not sure if there was something I was overlooking. That's Smitty prices with high end Warn quality.

    Yep, they are just before the secondary cats. In theory it shouldn't have any impact taking out the secondary cats. Things were fine from about Oct when I installed the URD Y pipe until the first week of Jan when the CEL came on. Not sure if it had to do with the cold weather, the fact I was wheeling when the CEL came on, URD recently updating their design to address some fitment issues, or something else. I'm still holding my breath the CEL will come back, so if the CEL gods are reading this, I am NOT declaring victory.

    for shits and giggles, check Sherrill tree. They have the Amsteel and Notch Hercules. Both are by the foot or pre cut lengths. Possible phone call to get a length you want with the thimble as well.

    https://sherrilltree.com/rope/winch/

    I have bought several different things from them over the years for my job with out an issue. Might be cheaper, might not.

    Im good w your plan. But if the winch was previously steel. Make sure you clean that drum of any burrs and just use a new fairlead.

    Yeah I figured it would be a Saturday of polishing... though that reminds me and I might want to make sure the line mounting drum side is the same...

    Somehow I missed this post, definitely going to get this fan. The Mr. Heater isn't very effective unless you're standing 24" in front of it or standing above it.

    Also, just got a recall for the hose that connects the Mr. Heater to a 20 lb propane tank. If you bought the hose in Dec/early Jan, it's probably part of the recall. Something about it possibly rupturing...

    Edit: I initially posted a link to the filter instead of the hose. Amazon has deleted the listing for the hose, so I deleted the link.

    Greetings from Amazon.

    The safety and satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you.​


    One of his latest videos is putting on a front bumper to his new Tacoma. Imagine my disappointment when I find out he didn't fab the bumper, instead he got it free from a manufacturer to pimp on his channel. He did mod it a little, but I was really hoping he'd build one from scratch.

    I bought the Mr Heater version. The one that doesn't require a filter, so I hope it's okay.

    He was busy making a new bumper for his Jeep! He jumps around on projects alot.

    If you get one of those fans, let me know. I could never make up my mind on which one and the prices are all over.

    Just realized I posted the link to the filter and not the hose in my previous post. Amazon has deleted the listing for the hose, so I deleted the link FYI.
