Also tow ropes are for towing (good to also have) and ****** straps/kinetic ropes are for getting unstuck.
^^^^^ Agreed. ARB has a good reputation.

I have a couple of Smittybilt recovery straps for light recovery. Something reputable in the 20K - 30K lb range should work since it sounds like you might just need the occasional light pull. They range in strength from 20K to 40K lbs. For anything more than a light pull, I'm using my winch anyway.

A good kinetic rope and soft shackles are very handy.

LOL. I know they will serve you well! I love mine, to bad I don't get to off-road more to use them. I need to get some videos and pics for the website that went live last night.

It helps to be direct with the USA factory and work with the rigging crew to perfect the ropes. Thatís how you get a great product and excellent price. Iím online now.
