Recovery equipment, after 1st Aid, Lifesaving & Communications Equipment, is something you should not venture about without!

Too many off-roaders are seriously injured or worse because they went out on what was to be a simple and easy trail when something terrible went wrong.

Being the only vehicle when you are off-roading can lead death if something goes wrong. You run off the road and your vehicle can't get back up, your stuck in sand or mud to your axles and can't get out, you break down and can't do a trail fix.............the list is long and survival when you are the only Jeep out there depends on your knowledge and your gear. Now having said that, you should NEVER hit the trails solo. No plan is perfect but I recommend three vehicles minimum but at the very least there should be two.

Even when you are in a group, getting a stuck, disabled or broken down Jeep back on the trail or somewhere safe will depend on what recovery gear you and your fellow Jeepers have with you.

Winches, tow straps, tow ropes, HiLift Jack and such all be in your vehicle before you hit the trail. See what we've reviewed our opinion of it.

A few bits of advice. Tow straps with metal hooks on the end are dangerous. Chains are dangerous. Do NOT buy or USE straps with metal hooks on the ends or any type of tow chain. Alwasy put a blanket over a steel winch cable in case it breaks, the blanket will take away some of its energy and possibly avoid serious injury to a bystander or driver.

The opinions stated here are for informational purposes and are not statements made by experts (what is an expert anyway), we are just real world adventurers looking for equipment that fits our purpose and that we can rely on. We share our experience with YOU so that you can make informed decisions as to the gear you want to purchase.
