    Basically I was looking into picking up a recovery strap but there are several types/brands and I know there are plenty of folks on here that know about this subject and what is better hook or loop? Thanks

    No hooks. One of the best is a snatch strap... like the ARB. It will give you stretch and less likely to pull your bumper off. Don't ask me how I know. :mad:

    Agreed, you want a recovery strap made of Nylon. Best fiber for most applications due to its low level of elasticity.

    Actually, nylon is preferred in snatch straps for the opposite reason. It has greater elasticity compared with poly.

    :facepalm:

    That is exactly what I meant, I just chose my words very poorly.

    What I meant by "low level of elasticity" was that it has a little stretch, not that "it's not very stretchy".

    In other words, it's not a completely static fiber, but it's not a dynamic fiber either, like elastic.

    Derp.

    Walmart. Like 10 bucks. 6500lb capacity. If it breaks, I don't cry. I just go buy.

    That's great right up until it damages something or worse, hurts somebody. Also, those have no stretch in them so if you need to snap somebody out, be prepared to come to a complete stop.

    6500lbs is a bit too small for our trucks. That's more for an ATV - not a vehicle.

    You should atleast get one that's 10k minimum tow strength with 20k breaking strength.
