Question Wil - Is the 710 overkill? Seems like it to me but for an extra $15 not a bad idea to upgrade from the 705.

There is a lot that goes into picking the correct strap for your needs. Choosing the correctly rated strap for use with your Tacoma does mean you need to take a few factors into consideration. Firstly, the weight of your truck. This can obviously change depending on if it is loaded, unloaded or towing a trailer.

Next, you have to look at what is stopping the forward momentum of your Tacoma. For example, a lightly stuck vehicle on a slippery slope may not need much of a pull to keep moving whereas if your vehicle is stuck in a deep mud hole, you have the weight of the truck, the suction effect of the mud, the weight of that mud, as well as the force required to overcome whatever it was that stopped you moving forward.

Thirdly, you need to ensure that the recovery point on your vehicle is capable of withstanding the force you are going to place on it. As you can see, the stresses on the vehicle can vary by a reasonably large amount, so you may in fact need a couple of differently rated straps.

When it comes to snatch straps, you need to keep in mind that for the strap to stretch and work effectively as a kinetic energy recovery device, it needs to have an appropriate load on it. So you can't go out and buy the largest rated snatch strap and expect it to work well on an unladen vehicle. It may not stretch at all and result in damage.

Both the 705 and 710 are good options for the Tacoma's. I would lean towards the 710 if you have a heavily loaded Taco (bumpers/armor/winch/camper/etc...) while yet the 705 would do just fine. Its really depending on the situation and set up of your Taco.

Thank you for the good info sir. I plan on adding bumpers and skids in the future but not for a while so I'll go with the ARB705US.
