Factor 55’s XTV Hawse Fairleads are exceptionally durable and help extend the life of your synthetic rope. They’re CNC machined from 1”-thick USA 6000 series aluminum bar—twice as thick as the industry standard. The extra-thick aluminum bar design gives a larger radius for synthetic rope to slide against, which means less wear and tear on the rope resulting in a longer service life. These fairleads wear a super-durable MIL-A-8625F TYPE III gunmetal gray hard-anodized finish with a laser engraved logo. This finish is, hands down, the best choice for ahawse fairlead. The finish leaves a .002”-thick Al2O3 ceramic coating that is in the top-five hardest materials known to mankind (not far away from diamond hardness). Available in common 4.875” and 6” mounting bolt spacing.
Please note, mounting hardware is not included. 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. Contact customer service for specific questions.
Warning: Always confirm that the synthetic rope cannot make contact to any sharp edges like the opening in the steel fairlead mounting plate or bumper opening. In some cases it may be required to grind this slot larger. Always sand and deburr this opening after any grinding operation.
