Could not agree more!After using synthetic cable I will not go back to using wire cable. Much easier to work with and if it ever does break it goes limp instead of flying back to you. Plus if it does break you just tie a knot in it and keep going (very hard to do with steel cable). I would look at the 4000#-5000# winches for a SxS. Warn has proven itself over the years and they are a good winch. If you decide to save a few bucks I have had really good luck with the Viper line of winches.
