Recovery straps are safe and affordable accessories that every Jeep owner should have in his recovery kit. When shopping for a new set, it is important to consider the weight of your vehicle. All recovery straps are rated according to their breaking strength, which is approximately twice as much as the maximum vehicle weight that it can safely tow. So, if your truck weighs 5,000 pounds, you will need recovery straps that can pull at least double that amount, or over 10,000 pounds. The recovery straps we sell range from 10,000 to 74,000 pounds in breaking strength. No, you would never need heavy-duty recovery straps to pull your Jeep Wrangler from the mud. Those straps are designed to retrieve commercial and monster trucks from sticky situations. They can even pull a full-size dump truck out of a ditch!
