Synthetic winch line

Getting a new warn m8000, what size winch line do the experts suggest? 5/16, 3/8, or 7/16? Has anyone used the thymble instead of the hook? How much line will fit on the m8000?

thanks Joe
Chrome strips around the edges of your doors? How cool is that?

When I upgraded my XRC8 winch, I went with the 3/8" line at 90'

I have the xrc8 and went with the synthetic line. I have only had it for a month and the end of the line that sticks past the fair lead is getting dirty and sun faded. Any body have any suggestions to prevent this?
