Title: Winch Thimble
Post by: connor0770 on December 24, 2011, 08:40:12 PM
I want to pick up a thimble for my winch rope before the Rubicon trip. Anybody know a place local (back in CA) that sells them pretty cheap? 4WP has em, but want to see if anybody else does.

This is what im talking about:

You will have to re-weave the rope into itself if you get one of those. Good luck doing that the first time. I think Arabia's has them. I can ask when I go in tomorrow and if he has one I'll pick it up for you (I'll call first).

I ordered mine, forget from where though.  Putting it on is super easy, follow the instructions that come with it and you'll have no problems.
