How to Roll Up Synthetic Winch Line ?

Hello.

When I roll up my sythetic winch line I attach the hook on a tree and pull the Jeep to this tree with the winch while I pres the brake pedal. On that way I avoid that the winch line draws into the lower layers when I use the winch the next time with more load.

Some days ago I rear that I could roll the winch line up crosswise (each layer in a different direction) instead.

But how should that work?
Did you ever hear of that?

Thanks.

The way you did it first is the way I have learned and the way I will keep doing it. It is simple you also don't do any work with method 1! (ya so what i am lazy )

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

The problem is my winch does 65 ft/min without load and a normal cable. With a synthetic line and some load it´s only about 50 ft/min fast. And I'm also lazy, I want it as fast as possible.

Well then grab a cup of coffee and read the wrangler forum from your phone while the winch does it's work lol. I actually believe there is enough weight in a jeep to not hold the brakes just leave it in neutral.
