+2 i agree
here is a video i made a while ago the winching starts at 8:30, you will notice i have a very heavy jacket over the winch line and my spotter stays out of the winch cable kill zone.

In the very same spot the very next weekend i snapped my cable in half and because of the jacket i use the cable went no where it just wrapped around one of the the jackets and dropped to the ground.
I recommend that there be something on the winch line in between every snatch block and also the truck.
so if you are using one snatch block you will need two jackets/blankets to drape over the cable. 2 snatch blocks= 3 blankets/jackets and so on.
my cable snapped in between two snatch blocks so be prepared when you go out. there is no such thing as too much recovery gear...lol

3to 10 pounds, some people use 2 sided sand bags others go to a 4 wheel shop and buy something made for this.

Horse blankets work well for this, And have several great uses off road as traction aids in the snow and ice, and as some place reasonably comfortable to lay when working under your rig, or keeping you warm when u do break down in the cold.

I have a shipping blanket that should do the trick then.

Or you could educate yourself some before going out. You didn't even get the very basics rights. It's not difficult
correct+winching+technique
Or at the very least, RTFM. Everything you did wrong is covered in the winch manual.

One example, someone comes along and sees the tree you scarred, and maybe killed, and decides to start a campaign to close the place to vehicles.

Tom I love how your so willing to to offer such insightful advice while not sounding like a total ass. Everyone has been giving me great advice on what i did wrong and how to fix it , but you seem to venture the path less traveled. As for educating myself, i thought that was the point of the forum. But i digress, every experience is a learning one and the next time time i put up a vid of me winching, it will be done safer due to what i have learned from the people on the forum, that includes you too Tom.

"...venture the path less traveled"? Every winch manufacturer includes a manual that covers safe winching.
They don't say "Use the winch while being videoed and post it on a forum so people can point out what you're doing wrong."
So it would seem all winch manufacturers are asses also.

"RTFM" lmfao! That is great! On another note I would go and get a good quality synthetic winch line, they are lighter, stronger, safer, and last longer when properly cared for, in addition get one that has a provision for a Clevis at the business end. This will eliminate near half the hazards of winching out.

Movers' quilts seem like a good idea based on DiscoMike's weight recommendation. I have two that movers left several years ago. I weighed them yesterday and they were 7.5 to 8 lbs. each.

'99 DII, STI wires, Champion 7070s, '04 CDL, ARB Bull Bar, Warn winch, Garvin WILDERNESS rack, painted headliner, air springs victim, headgaskets at 109,000, plus victim of XYZ (twice) and many other ridiculous DII failures. AMIGO FREE since February 2011.

Runs like a top; now if I could just afford the gas!

You dont need a locker, you have a winch.
90% of off roading does not require a locker, the other 10% requires a locker or a winch, you already have a winch.
If you had working traction control that would be almost equivalent to a winch, so save your money on the lockers and fix your 3 Amigo's.
