My Warn M12000 has 3/8" (just over 9mm I think) wire rope and I wouldn't run anything smaller for a 404. There is a slight difference in overall strength between fiber core (like hemp core) and wire core with the wire core being slightly stronger but I am not sure what other advantages it may have.

It's not about the truck and it is not about the distance traveled. Get out there with whatever you have, meet people and see things. Push the envelope of your comfort zone and live.
