just thought i'd say that on sunday a couple friends went wheelin and 1 got stuck .just happend to be a jeep ,annother guy with a toyota 4-runner tried to pull him out when something broke on the jeep and sent the strap flying ...... took out the driver side rear window and mirror and a good gash down the side . LUCKILY NO ONE GOT HURT ! if it would have went 6-8 inches to the right i'm sure it would have gone through the rear window and his head . please be carefull on the trail and play safe . spend the money and bolt things the right way.

It is a very dangerous sport when it comes to recovery...This is one major reason we have trail masters out on our club runs to make sure that everyone has properly mounted tow points (grade 8 hardware) and always remember if you have to put two straps together for recovery that you attach the two straps properly by tyeing them together or using a wooden dowel so you will be able to take the straps apart after...NEVER EVER use a clevis to attach 2 straps together...There has been many fatalities over the past couple years where the strap broke launching the clevis through the back window carrying on with enough force to go right through the back of the seat killing the driver instantly... nsjc.proboards38.com/index.cgi?board=safety&action=display&thread=1156167423 Even when doing it properly with a wooden dowel caution should be taken and all passengers should be removed from the vehicle...It happened to Lance and I one night, we put two straps together properly with a wooden dowel but the strap snapped and the strap and wooden dowel went like a missile right through Lance's back window carrying on through smashing the front windshield aswell...
Please wheel safely my Jeeping friends!
