If you can afford it get the 60 inch. I have a similar product but it is only 48 inches. The extra foot can be very useful off road.

With the proper accessories, yes. If you have a long way to winch you will grow a set of arms once you are done. If a picture is worth a thousand words how many do you get for a Video?

One thing they fail to show is what to do once you have pulled the vehicle the length of the jack and are still stuck. You secure the vehicle form rolling backwards or forward and reset the chains.
