Re: Minimum Requirements

If you can get the vehicle lifted off a tire in a safe manner, i believe that will work, but i'll let an official make the calls....

Re: Minimum Requirements

I dont know what the strength of my recovery strap is. I cant remember if the packaging said 7,000 or 17,000. Its about 2 inches wide, and has loops on either end. I've used it to pull people out of mud, off of ice, and pulled my buddy out of the quarry ice when the ice broke under his truck!


Is this one ok, or do I need to get a new one?

Re: Minimum Requirements

No that montero is not an acceptable tow strap! but anyways if it is a 2"X20 or 30 strap you should be alright. as long as there are no hooks on it!

Re: Minimum Requirements

Pick one up from Walmart with a couple of self tapping screws then just mount them to your bumper in the back or the front!

Your best bet would probably be to hit WalMart. You can make to work. Make sure it has the metal bracket at the base of the pole. Sometimes they pull off when you pull them out of the PVC tube they sell them out of.

Re: Minimum Requirements

the best part is that they are only 5 bucks so if you break it they are cheap to replace!

I have a plastic window flag that I picked up at The Badlands last time I went and you can use it. I'll have a full size flag this time.
