If you get a choice take the rope.I have a gorilla 3000lb and 100ft of synthetic rope. The rope works great,Had it almost a year an no problems.At the time I bought my winch gorilla didn`t have the synthetic rope with there winches,I bought that speratley an spliced the rope to the winchdrum.

I just ordered a gorilla with the 45' synthetic, however I just learned that the brand they supply is not very good quality. It's called 'blue steel' but it's a knockoff of another high end brand.

I'll use it until it breaks but I likely wont replace it with blue steel again.

I ordered a Gorilla 3000 lb with 45' of steel cable last night off of EBAY. With mounting bracket included total cost was $156.98. You can't really beat that!

I`ve got blue steel synthetic rope and it never let me down.Ive had mine burried in mud many times an it still works great. Hasn`t broke an I don`t expect it will

Don't be to sure i was pulling out a pathfinder from a ditch and something told me to lay my jacket on the cable (i never do that). then my cable snapped,it's better when the jacket takes the hit instead of my melon. Now i ride with my small kids so i got the synthetic rope so i don't have to worry about anything like that happening.

My riding buddies are 3 1/2 and 5 both male so you know that they get there hands on everything when your not looking. but it's sometimes better riding than riding with older people.
