I have some extra cash laying around and I was thinking of keeping a synthetic cable for my winch vacuum sealed in a bag in the back. A just in case the one on the winch breaks type item. Do they have a shelf life if stored like this?

Just curious if it's wasted money or not.

The things that hurt them are grit, UV and scuffing over sharp hard points. Stored in a bag inside the Jeep, none of those would be present. I don't see the advantage of a vacuum.

That is definitely the right answer for getting home, not cluttering up the Jeep with parts and for fixing it quickly and easily out on the trail. But I can't remember how to do it.

Just curious, how much do you use your winch?
