the rope is a newer upgrade then the winch they print it in the manual beacouse they want you to buy there stuff.got my gorilla winch and in says in the manual " replace line w/ nothing other than steel line same specs. etc. " It came w? Blue synthetic "upgrade" any exp.
I have the waterproof 2500 and have used it more than ever expected and love it. I've had it about 3 months and has been underwater or buried in mud about everytime I've been out with the quad and never had any problems.so how are your gorilla wiches doing i have thought about buying one but haven't known anyone with them
