maybe i'll get lucky and find a bigger winch with it already on it. my 3000 lb isn't cutting it on the bigger vehicles anymore.

IIRC, it was around $200, best price I could find for the 3/8 and I think it's 96 feet.

I picked my last one up from Jeeperzcreeperz but it was in a group buy with junk90xj from allpro automotive. I'm sure you can get it through either place.
