I bought a smittybilt xrc 8 comp several months ago and last weekend got the chance to put it to the test.
So today I was out cleaning the Jeep and got to pulling the synthetic cable out to redrum it.
2 things I noticed and have questions.
#1. The line is CAKED in mud. Pretty much the full length. Just hose off? Only "rope" I'm used to using is climbing rope, and mud and debris are the death of climbing rope (causes abrasion, etc) so I wasn't sure if I need to REALLY clean it, or just hose it off and wipe it down with a rag.
#2. Several flat spots on the line now. Wasn't sure if that's something to be concerned about. I had noticed flat spots when using the winch to pull, just checking if this is normal.
Thanks for the help.
