Try your local logging supply or heavy equipment supply outfit. They should be able to fix you up with some
quality cable. You can also buy it from Warn but it can be pricey. Nickmil.

SJ, You will have a lot of choices as to which sort of cable to get, but remember it this way: The ropey cable handles easy, coils nice, but is sensitive to sheave diameter, easily damaged when used on a bad snatch, and wants to unravel easily when turning a tight edge, corner, or small diameter fairlead. The wirey cable is stiffer, harder to spool, impossible to coil, but will take lots of abuse. Ropey cable has many groups with smaller strands per group. Wirey cable has fewer groups and heavier strands within the group. Hope this helps a little.
