Suggest a snatch block and wiring question for winches

Got a smittybilt 12k with syn line from Amazon super cheap. Need some insight.


Want a snatchblock that isn't $100 but will work well with syn rope and the weight. Hf has a 20k for $27 but I am definitely skeptical.


For wiring I plan to use 2/0 gauge welding cable to a forklift connector,possibly run through split loom or heater hose. Plan was to go along the rh frame rail when facing the truck, any issues here?

Also anyone in the nj/ny area have a hydraulic crimper I could rent?

I ran the wires down the LH rail (engine side) into the battery box.


Air gas has the wire (welder) and terminals needed. They will also crimp them on at no charge.

From what I've seen any snatch block will work fine, I typically do ARB or TJM but that's just been b/c of availability and have never bought a synthetic specific block. If I were using it every day, on every trip, I might consider it once I started breaking lines but none of that applies. I think the $60 run of the mill name brand is more than sufficient-concur on not being sure about HF.
