For safe operation of your synthetic winch rope, an Aluminum Fairlead is a
necessity, but there are also several benefits.
One. Instead of sticking 3.5" off the front of your bumper, the ShrockWorks
aluminum fairlead protrudes only 3/4"! That is a serious saving that will
greatly benefit your approach angle. Just take a look at the damage done to
a $100 Roller fairlead this
Two. Weight savings. That big roller fairlead weighs in at 12 lbs. The ShrockWorks
Aluminum Fairlead weighs only 1.4 lbs. That's a significant savings of 10.5
lbs of unneeded weight! Pair that with the 15 lbs you save with the synthetic
rope itself, and you loose over 25 lbs of bulk off your front suspension.
These Aluminum fairleads are designed specifically for winches running synthetic
winch rope. They are CNC machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 billet aluminum
for a smooth machined surface.
Available in natural aluminum or in a Hard Anodized Black finish.
NOT for use with steel winch cable.
