1jeeplvr Well I went with 80 ft of 3/8 and Im glad I did.I dont know how they fit 100ft on the drum.

WorkingMan It's my opinion the extra 6ft will not be a problem, The VR8000-S comes with 100ft of SPYDYRA rope.

She'd have more than your you-know-whats if you tried to buy countertops that only cost as much as a rope and a battery.

Not to mention the fewer layers of rope on the winch, the more it can winch and the lower the amperage consumption at the same pull. In other words, the winch is working a lot harder to pull a load when the winch line is at the top layer than when it is on the first layer.
Gotcha Jerry.Thanks.Ill stick with 80'.You answered my last PM to you.Between my batt & cable its going to be an expensive weekend.My wife didnt need those new countertops anyway

Max length cable for Warn winch

My VR8000 winch came with 94ft of cable.Will 100ft of rope fit w/o causing any problems? I am afraid it will be too long & will bind up
