Looking at getting a Warn winch and a Vice or Swarf mount. Pretty sure I want synthetic rope. Was definitely sure I wanted/needed the 12k vs 10k, but noticed a 20' difference in rope length, with the smaller winch having the longer rope. Anyone have any idea why?

Probably thicker rope on the stronger model.

I think both were ⅜" rope. I'd wondered if it was drum sized. I'm now wondering if it's a cost thing. If so, could I buy a longer rope for the 12k?
