I spooled on a new 3/8 synthetic winch rope today that I got a good deal on. My steel cable was still like new but the new cable is much lighter and safer. I also scored a deal on Craigslist for a used Tuffy locking center console. It fits perfect between the seats, now I just need to fab some brackets to mount it. I was going to build one until this came up for $10! I think I will mount my radio to the front of it and get rid of my last minute bracket.
