What size cable should I have on my Ramsey Re8000, winch. It has a capacity of 150' of 5/16". I bought it used with 3/8", but the drum is not full, about 60'. I have a bunch of 1/4" galvanized cable, but I think that is too weak(Ramsey 6000's come with 1/4"). I'm pulling my 4300lb. Toyota, or what ever is stuck. Do you think that 1/4" would stand up to a little winching or should I just save my pennies and buy 5/16"?
