Basic off road recovery equipment

I bought a ARB snatch strap, Smitty Built shackles, and Smitty Built hitch receiver shackle. Going to get a High Lift once I have my tool box. What other basic bits of kit do you find yourself using regularly? Manufacturers and models that have stood up well and you would buy again....save me from buying poor quality!

I use the heck out of my backcountry snow shovel when going backcountry skiing. The next most used item is a good pair of deerskin work gloves, they never leave my truck.

I like keeping some basic tools as well. Jumper cables. Gloves for sure. Fuses are good too. Sometimes it maybe something simple like that will help get you home.

i don’t have much in the truck right now. because i’m out of space... but i have a snatch strap from norther tools. it’s rated a lot higher than what our trucks weigh, but i got it on sell for $35. i need to get 2 d-ring hitch shackles, yes i’m going to get 2 just incase someone i’m trying to pull out dose not have one. plain on getting tool box, and i’ll have A LOT more stuff. list a few, hitch shackles, old army trench shovel(we have one and don’t use it, so i will and it’s not to big) plain on getting a hi lift, air pump.

Totally forgot about the zip ties. I grabbed a huge handful from one of my electricians. Zip ties work for everything, almost as useful as duct tape.

Also, head lamp. It's nice to have the extra hand you would use to hold a flashlight free.

That too.

The demo bar works great for everything from pounding out bent sheet metal to prying shit that gets stuck. Plus I am in construction so I use it for everything. Keep it under the driver seat.

You went with an obvious move, with poor execution. I'm gonna have to pull you out. Good game.
