The very first thing you should purchase after purchasing your 4WD vehicle is a tow strap. Useful to help extract you from those situations when you get in a little over your head. Once you've built your rig, they are invaluable for extracting your buddies when they get in over their heads.
Note that we do not reccomend using tow straps with integrated hooks. They can be down right dangerous if the hook were pop off or break. Nothing like a 2 lb chunk of steel flying through the air toward your head to wake you up on a lazy afternoon. These straps have sewn in loops at each end so you can securely attach them to a D-Ring or secure tow hook on your vehicle (see our "Hooker" product below)
