Must have recovery gear...

Hey guys, looking for a list of what I really should have. Excluding the winch since the funds do not quite allow that yet. Will most likely be buying a hi-lift jack, so what should I get with it?

Thanks,
Lefty

A Strap 3"x30' and recovery points on the vehical are a great start. I also feel a shovel is also great recovery equipment. Not exactly recovery but a first aid kit and a fire extingisher should also be included in your basic kit.

If you don't have a winch, the MOST important thing to always bring with you offroad is another Jeep, preferably driven by a mechanic. I am NOT kidding. Of coarse a tow strap and secure places to attach it front and rear are also essential. Then as blackZZR's said "flat tire repair kit, first aid kit, fire puter outer thinggy , warm blanket and a first aid kit" except I'm not sure you need two first aid kits.

Nah, these guys don't know what they are talkin about... seems like the only wheelin they do is on thier front lawns


I bring a flare gun, some extra shells, and a bottle of tequila. Figure the flare gun will start a big enough fire that the forest service will likely come rescue you.

I carry some square pieces of plywood, they can keep a jack from sinking, or can be put under the tires in slippery situations.

Well I will leave the flares under the seat, sort of as a just-in-case/last-resort measure.

Not sure if the Coast Guard can handle rescues in inland muddy water holes.

NICE. I'm wheeling with you then. ("...kindly do not throw me out *** backwards for hankering for a less civilized spirit. why don't i just mosey on along and find my friends and my tequila on my way back west?" - anyone know who that is?)

On another note, you (Lefty) ought to be aware that straps are good. And I recently learned that there are snatch straps, and then there are tow straps. Each having their own place in your recovery kit.

Cheers,
M

Wait a sec, isn't a snatch strap what lesbians use when they want penetration?

how about a winch, Tree Strap, Leather gloves, Choker Chain, Snatch BLock, Comalong in place or in addition to the winch.

Heavy Coat - for the winch line (or comalong). Floor mats and or small wood planks to place under the tires for traction. Clevis rings (d-rings at least 2).

2 or 3 inch HD ratchet straps comin pretty handy sometimes too.

the most important aspect of recovery is common sense and experience with your specific equipment.
