    i was thinking about those same questions, i figured most people that regular trailing have the straps and i wouldnt need them as they would be a waste as i dont go very much

    If you have a hitch then you can hook a strap through there and then from the front you have tow hooks so you should be set

    get a good quality recovery strap

    If you go offroad - you should have a recovery strap (no hooks) and a solid tow point and never go offroad alone.

    The best (IMO) 'solid tow point' (other than the factory tow hook) is having a hitch. On a draw bar....using a D-ring (threaded pin) in the hole where the ball would mount.

    Use the search button to search what people are using in terms of recovery straps & tow points.

    If you are recovering someone else's vehicle, make sure they have a solid tow point. If they don't have a solid tow point that involves integration with the frame. Or else - you need to tell them YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE for damage caused by using non-solid area to tow from.
