recovery gear help

so i just realized that i need some recovery gear! i'm looking into some tow hooks for up front and a hitch for the back but i'm not exactly sure what to look for in terms of load rating, towing capacity, etc... if someone could explain what i need to look for it would be great. i also want to get a snatch strap, would a 20,000 lb one be enough? any and all help is appreciated!

If you get a 2" receiver in the rear, and tow hooks using the proper brackets up front, you should be good to go. 20,000 lbs should be a good strap but I like to go as best I can with my funds, so I'd get the 30,000 or more one. But that's just me. Make sure you get a strap without hooks on it, and use d-rings, or the like for connections.

For the tow hooks upfront I would believe that most people on here are going to recommend C4x4 Tow Hooks and for a rear 2" receiver I'd go with a class III. I have a 1 1/4" receiver on mine but thats what it came with I plan on building a custom bumper soon. I also have the C4x4 tow hooks waiting to be installed.
