Rope doesn't really work with roller if you want the rollers, order the winch with cable.
Wiring isn't difficult, the annoying part I found was the cabling was "just" that much too short if running direct to the battery (given a JK's battery location). Mine worked out OK as I've added a solenoid on the power cable under the hood.

Ditto on the power cable lengths! Simple enough to install just a thought process as to where to mount stuff. On mine (not a Runva I should add) the control box was designed to mount on top of the winch as many do. In the ARB bar on the JK the winch left a gap on the passenger side large enough to comfortably fit the control box so it dropped down to the same level as the winch reducing air blockage in front of the grill and making it less obvious.

However as the electrical connections to the winch are on the other end (drivers side when installed) the cables from control box to winch were a few inches short. First obvious option is to replace with longer cables but unless you have the ability to crimp connectors properly onto cable that thick you are asking for trouble. So what I did was to go to Supercheap and grab 2 x 30cm battery cables premade with connectors. Simply used a good quality bolt and nut to join them together then wrap up the join and seal (I happened to have a roll of self amalgamating rubber tape from aircraft wiring looms which sealed it up nicely).

I just drilled 'offset' holes on the roller fairlead to fit my ARB bar, fits like a glove now.

If I was going to swap out with rope then I would just remove the rollers and stick on an offset fairlead for the rope. You can then use longer mounting bolts and the bar is stock then without any modification.
