Post pics of your recovery gear

Just trying to see what everyone is using for recovery straps, and any other gear you might have.

Here is mine, the strap is rated for 50,000 lbs, its 4" wide, I got it at cost (glad to know people) for 60 bucks (retail on it is $120) 30ft long.

I don't have any pics. of my chain, but I have a partial of my 15' strap with a hook on each end. My chain is 20' with a hook on eack end. The strap was like $15-20 at Target and the Chain was like $40 at Lowes.

got the 15 fter from advanced, like 20 bucks and its lasted me over a year now, i think that is worth the money. when i need a new one i will probably be upgrading to something better, can't say when that will be, this one has done me good.

I don't have any pics but mine includes a 3"x30" strap,highlift jack,shovel, shackles,tree saver, winch just need a front mount receiver and a couple of other things I know I am forgetting.

Mike just a heads up, be careful with that strap with the hooks on the ends I have seen them break and do alot of damage.

I have a Wally world brand 10k lb towstrap with loop ends, I'll be buying a better one soon, and a couple of D-rings. A big mutherfudger of a bumper with a winch doesn't hurt either. Oh, I have that towstrap bolted to my receiver. And I have a chain that was made to tow Big rigs that is older than me. It's a 1/2" Grade 70 I think. Oh, and my front tow hooks, too.

I don't have any pics, so I'll improvise:

I've got a padlocked heavy-duty container in my bed which contains:
  • OEM jack
  • 2 ton ***-a-Long
  • 20' tow cable rated at 5 tons
  • 30' x 3" tow strap with hook ends (yikes!)
  • camp shovel - for those desperate attempts to dig out your burried differential
  • Set of 2-way radio's, for communication during towing, un-stucking, or wheelin'
  • tool-box with basic hand tools, a spare serpentine belt, lubricant, thread-lock, gloves, and fuses
  • compact air-compressor/inflator/flashlight
