hey guys, i was thinking of getting a come along because i dont know too many people to go off roading with. also i want to get a tow strap. do you guys have suggestions for both or either one of good ones to get or things to look for, and can i get reasons why what you suggest is preferred? just trying to learn myself in the ways of dirt. thanx m8s

go to tractor supply and pick up 2 or 3 straps a come along, some snatch blocks some shackels and a hi lift and you can do just about anything.

Strap isnt bad, looks like i has a good rating. Good straps are pricey. That come a long is junk. I have on and it wont budge my truck when stuck off road


Your going to pay some $$$ for a good come a long

This would probably be a goog come along:

Allthough it looks seriously heavy! + it's a little pricy....

They can be found in 1, 2, 3, and 5 tons versions.
