Here is a reverse pull video that shows an easier to rig system more clearly.

Great Education on Winching

Just ordered a winch for my YJ so I figure these vids as a free education I can use later on.

**Disclaimer** I am not involved in the video in any way, I just found it on youtube and thought I would share.

I can't watch the remaining videos either but I would think its down to 4x4 training having listed them as private to avoid "abuse" of its content.

But I am new to this forum but not entirely in regards to offroading and recovering while offroading. As a active serving member of my local National Guard I need classes and qualifications to drive the specific military vehicles that I drive in order to be allowed to drive them as a qualified operator which also covers recovery by another vehicle .

But one thing I learnt and keep to stick by is that you should NEVER NEVER shock-load a recovery strap. They are intended to be hooked up, brought to tautness and then used to recover in that capacity with the strap being under tension all the time. Letting it go slack in order to get some "headstart" will inevitable only lead to the strap violently snapping with potentially personal injury.

Secondly, always use the recovery gear supplied by the vehicle being recovered on that particular vehicle etc. And I will elaborate on what I mean if people wants me to.

In the situation listed its not the lines max pull that will be your limiting factor, rather the fact that every clevis, d-ring needs to be rated for the pull you are a about to do. But whether you can "manage" with only the rating that each "cable stay" will pull, or whether you need the total pull rating on all those things I am actually not sure of.

I just know that if you have a winch capable of pulling 10,000 pounds then all your rigging gear needs to have a SWL of 10,000 or more.
