    1/2" is rated up to 34,000lbs (17tons)
    3/8" is up to 17,000 (8.5 tons) - which is pretty damn strong.

    Another thing to consider is the difference in thickness. You can (barely) fit 100' of syn line on an 8k winch, so with the 1/2" line you would most-likely only get 50' to fit (maybe). That's not a lot of length, specially when you need to do long-pulls, or double/triple lines.

    Oh damn I missed that part in DDD's ad. Yeah 3/8" is damn strong & good point about only being able to fit that much (which is not much) rope in the winch





    Via the PM I just got back, too late... :pout:

    Another line to look into for the winch is Samson rope. I want to say that 5/16 is rated for something like 10000 lbs. it also doesn't stretch. I was working on a job where some of it was being used to pull in main electrical feeds, and a guy offered me the end of it to cut for a test, and it took a couple tries using linemans pliers to get through. I have cut 1/4 inch bolts with the same pliers.

    Samson is the original manufacturer of Amsteel Blue, which is made of a product called Dyneema... just to cover any confusion. ;)

    You can get all the other synthetic out there, but original Amsteel is pretty much impossible to beat.

    (I have MasterPull Superline only because I got a really good deal at the time :eek:)

    Anyone know of good (begginer) trails near Leavenworth?

    I know Liberty isnt too far, but after hearing about the last trip some of you made there, probably not a good one for a single stock truck to take.

    The official word is that Leavenworth area is locked down with no Class II (Jeeps, etc.) or Class IV (side by sides) trails.
    There is a single area for Class I (ATVs) and Class III (dirtbikes) along HWY 97, with a total of 16 miles of trail. It's pretty fun but not anything serious for you experienced guys.

    HOWEVER, there's some OK gravel/dirt National Forest roads. You might engage 4x4 or use AWD due to the rainy season, and what I saw you could do in a car.
    Last week, I went to Peshastin and went up Derby Canyon Rd to NF-7400 area. The roads were suitable for 2WD, but interesting from a perspective of exploring. I had a fun time and thought it was worth the drive, but wasn't challenged in the slightest.

    Yeah I'd love to be up there but I'll be in California for a wedding. I'm surprised we opened up at 10 point underdogs.



    Hey were you in a house when in Pullman?

    Shit you shoulda been in California a few weeks ago to see the upset against USC, that woulda been NUTS!

    No I wasn't. Never got into the Greek scene early on. Would have liked to as a Junior/Senior but by then it was too late (didn't want to be stuck with bitch chores). I have a bunch of friends in houses though & they all loved it.

    Were you in a house?

    19 is very common with 17 a close second in popularity and I've chatted them up the 5, as for the 90 IDK which channel they are on. If I'm on a road trip I switch between 19 and 17 and 9 is emergency.

    I'll be sure and check out those channels, I'm heard a little chatter on 5 when I was messing around with my CB this afternoon (I live a few blocks from I-5)
