The Factor 55 Short Drum Competition Fairlead is specifically designed for short-drum winches, such as the WARN 9.0Rc.

Factor 55 Hawse Fairleads are the best in the business. They're CNC machined from thick USA 6000-series aluminum bar and thicker than the industry-standard 0.75 inch size to extend rope life. Additionally, the slot opening is taller to allow larger 1/2 inch tube thimbles to pass through.

All Factor 55 Fairleads are coated with a durable MIL-A-8625F TYPE III gunmetal gray hard-anodized finish with a laser-engraved logo. That finish is not a cosmetic choice; the hard coating resists abrasion, damage from extreme side pulls, and is one of the top-five hardest materials known to exist. Plus the low friction coefficient means less wear and tear on your rope.

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 inch Grade 5-Grade 8 bolts in 1.25-1.5 inch shank length is a good starting point for fitment. 7/16 inch bolts may also be used. Contact customer service for specific questions.

  • Large-radius opening provides longer service life for synthetic rope
  • Tall opening lets tube thimbles of up to 1/2 inch pass through
