This Factor 55 (00016) Gray Hawse Winch Fairlead 1.0 is CNC-machined from 1"-thick bar of aluminum, and the thicker aluminum means there’s a larger outer fillet radius for your synthetic rope to slide against. This means less stress on the rope fibers during high angular pulls, which increases the life span of your rope! This fairlead is compatible with larger 1/2"-diameter rope tube thimbles, and its taller rope slot height opening allows larger 1/2" tube thimbles to pass through. It also has a durable MIL-A-8625F TYPE III gun metal gray hard anodized finished with a laser engraved logo. The coating resists abrasion damage that can be caused when a dirty or gritty synthetic winch rope rubs against it. Another valuable material property from hard anodized coatings are the low coefficients of friction. Low friction means lower rope heat. The only drawback is hard anodizing is not offered in typical bright and fancy anodized colors. All Factor 55 fairleads only come in MIL-A-8625 hard gray finishes.

*For synthetic winch rope only. 

Please Note: Fairleads DO NOT come with mounting hardware. The reason for this is depending on your vehicle, bumper and fairlead mounting thicknesses, the shank length of the bolts may need to be longer or shorter to prevent the bolts from contacting the body of your winch. In most cases, the mounting bolts that are supplied by your winch manufacturer are adequate in strength and length. In some cases, longer bolts are required and 3/8" Grade 5-Grade 8 bolts in 1.25-1.5" shank length is a good starting point for fitment. 7/16" bolts may also be used.

On my Jeep Wrangler, I decided to run a synthetic winch cable, and couldn't be more happy with it. However, my old Hawse Fairlead was getting really worn out, and I decided it was time for an upgrade, so this Factor 55 Hawse Fairlead is going to be a perfect replacement for my Jeep.

I ripped the old one off, it only takes two bolts, but this thing is thick. It's 3/4 of an inch thick, and this ceramic on here feels really durable, I think it's going to match the Jeep really well, plus it'll look great and provide some more protection, so let's get it bolted up.

As you can see, we don't have anything onto our winch cable here, and it'll slide easily through, through this thimble. Now I'm going to use some 5/8th hardware I had laying around. Go through the holes of the bumper, put a lock not on the backside. Then do the same on the other side. Use a 5/8th wrench and a 5/8th socket to get this tightened up. And if you have both the bolts tightened up, your installation's complete.

Well, that's a wrap. We just finished up the install of this Factor 55 Hawse 1.0 Fairlead onto my 2012 JK Wrangler. Now the fit and finish of this Hawse Fairlead are extremely incredible. It is a really nice piece, it's extremely durable, plus it's going to last longer than this Jeep will, then well on forward past that. Now you can find this Factor 55 Hawse Fairlead, as well as many other great winching accessories for your JK or off road vehicle right here at CJPonyParts.com.
