Daystar Products now offers a simple and economical way to upgrade a standard winch roller fairlead to work with any synthetic rope. Daystar?s Rope Rollers replace the steel rollers on any conventional fairlead so you can retain the benefits of a roller fairlead while running synthetic winch rope.
Synthetic winch rope is rapidly becoming standard equipment on trail rigs because it offers several performance and safety advantages over conventional winch cable. However, there are unseen costs associated with converting a winch to use synthetic rope. The steel rollers on a conventional roller fairlead are not compatible to synthetic rope because they can cause chafing and abrasion. Most rope manufacturers recommend using an aluminum Hawse-type fairlead. These fairleads can cost over $100, not to mention the extra time and hassle of installation. Further, some bumper designs are not compatible with a Hawse type fairlead.
Daystar?s Rope Rollers are constructed of durable polyurethane material for superior chafing resistance. Polyurethane provides a smooth surface for the rope to slide against while being virtually unbreakable. Designed to withstand the tremendous forces that a modern winch can dish out, the Rope Rollers will not groove or gall during angled pulls. They work with any standard 5,000-9,000-lb. roller fairlead regardless of the manufacturer.
Combine Daystar?s Rope Rollers with a Winch Isolator to complete your customized winch installation.

The long rollers are about 1/2 inch too long for my fairlead so they had to be cut to length (mentioned in the installation instructions). I used a lathe but the material is fairly soft so it is difficult, but not impossible, to get a good cut. Machining is easier if you freeze it. I think a hack saw, Sawzall or band saw would work well if you are careful. I haven't used them much so I don't know how the soft material will hold up to heavy use.
Q: I have a 2012 Power Wagon w/the factory12K lb Warn winch with steel cable & roller fairlead (I'm converting to synthetic). The description for the Daystar product doesn't give the lengths of the rollers and the PW's fairlead mount look custom. Lengths? Answer this question
A: Sorry the KU70054 will not fit with the 12K. The power wagon has a deferent size. The dimensions on their rollers is as follows: Long is 7.89 length with a 1.63” OD and .640” ID Short is 4.10 length with a 1.63” OD and .640 ID
