Where to buy winch cable? Price?

Ok, sorry about the plethora of winch related questions...if it ain't one thing, it's another, ya know. I forgot to add this to the other post. The winch also needs a new cable... 150' of 5/16 cable. The cheapest I've yet found it is $169...roughly a bit more than a buck a foot. I'd like to keep the original length (I know it's long and all, but it'd be handy on the farm), but that's a bit steep. Anyone know of a cheap place to find good, heavy winch cable? What's the minimum size I'd want to run on a 8000# winch? BTW, it looks like the cable that's on it is 3/8s, instead of the original 5/16...any suggestions?

Me too. I hear there's a shop around here that'll do 150' 5/16" for about 60 bucks. I'll post if this pans out.

Is that all I need? Galvanized cable?

I noted that several of the competetors in the recent Farmington ARCA event had the blue Masterpull rope/cable on thiers...... looks like good weight savings ...

Weight savings...heh heh heh...After I get this custom, bombproof winch mount done, whatever weight I'd save will be irrelevant. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Pat was on a trail ride last May in the Premier Welder Bronco with us. He sells the nylon cable and used it in front of us. It worked great and allowed the winch to run more efficiently. Chad

Just found out...not all galvanized cable is the same. Most hardware stores sell "wire rope". It looks the same on the outside but has an actual nylon rope core.
