Hey, what's up, guys? Ryan here from ExtremeTerrain, and today I'm here with the Rugged Ridge Recovery Strap 3 inch by 30 feet with a 30,000-pound rating. This is pretty reasonably priced. Currently, this strap is coming in right around $40 which I think is a pretty good price point for what you're getting. And this is a very good, useful piece of recovery gear that you should definitely have with you if you're an avid off-roader.Now, recovery straps differ from a tow strap. A tow strap is a very rigid strap. It's good for towing, exactly like in the name and also it normally has hooks on the end of it. Now, what makes the difference between a tow strap and a recovery strap is also a very beneficial aspect to a recovery strap, and why it is a very useful piece of equipment for us to bring with us when we go off-roading. The main difference is going to be the elasticity. A tow strap like I said is a very rigid strap, and it's for strict pulling. What is beneficial about a recovery strap is that elasticity. So the elasticity aids in recovery and the way that it aids is it allows this strap to stretch. So when you decide to use this strap the way that it's gonna work, you're gonna hook up to both vehicles. A recovery strap is going to allow you to get a head start, build up some momentum. And what this strap is actually gonna do is it's gonna stretch just a little bit. And it's gonna ease that shock load which would normally break a tow strap, or cause a lot of harm to your vehicle. And that way you can pull your buddy out when they do they get stuck.This is very useful to have. It's a very easy thing to use if you don't want to spool out that wench line. You don't want to mess around with that, and it's not exactly needed in that particular recovery point. You can hook this up to one of the Jeeps, to a D-ring in a tow hitch, whatever you want to do, hook it up to another Jeep, and that way you guys can just yank each other out, and get out of that stuck situation.Now another way that this strap would be very useful is if your winch line isn't long enough. If you do get stuck, a tree is very far away, you just don't have the amount of wench line that you need. You got an extra 30 feet with this strap. Now, this strap is constructed of nylon webbing. So it is 3 inches wide, 30 foot long, and has a rating of 30,000 pounds which is plenty for pretty much anything you're gonna do or anybody that you want to pull out that is stuck. Now, it has reinforced eyelets on the end, and this is gonna be great because it's just gonna be abrasive resistant. You're not really gonna wear through that when you're sticking it through a D-ring, or like I said a tow hitch, anything that you're really hooking onto.Now, that nylon webbing is mildew resistant. So unlike a normal strap that's made of fabric, they're gonna get wet. They're gonna start to stink. That's gonna affect the integrity of that strap. You're not gonna have this issue with this strap. That's gonna aid in the longevity of this and of course, the whole durability aspect of this strap. Now, this strap is orange. It's gonna be very easy to see when you have it out. It's gonna be very easy to see when it's in the back of your Jeep, of course, to find it, get it out, and use it. And like I said for the price, for the ease of use, the construction, the quality, everything that you're getting out of this strap overall I think that it's a very good strap. And it's an affordable option that you can just throw in the back of your Jeep and of course, take with you when you're off-roading. So, guys, that's gonna wrap it up for my review.

Jim H, 2010 Jeep Wrangler JKWeb Development My dad would always take me trail riding in the Pine Barrens as a kid when I lived in South Jersey, so I’ve always been into four wheel drive trucks and Jeeps. When the time came for me to get a vehicle, I picked up an old Cherokee. I still have that old Jeep strictly for offroading, but after a few...
