    List of Recovery Gear

    Looking for a list (Basic and Comprehensive) of recovery gear. Assume I have nothing but common sense and a limited bank account.

    Thanks!

    List of Recovery Gear

    The ARB recovery bag is a great kit to start with and build upon. The bag kit includes a tree saver, tow strap, snatch strap, snatch block and winch cable weight. I understand being careful and reasonable about budget, but your life and general safety and those around you is a higher priority.

    Have another rig there. Best recovery gear.

    A few shackles, couple tow straps, snatch block, snatch strap, shovel (full size, cracks me up when i see people with one of those little gardening tools) and a working winch go a long way.

    Do some snow runs this winter and you'll get some practice with recovery.

    Lots of good suggestions here so far! I'll throw in these two.

    -Arb Snatch Strap(cheaper) or kinetic rope(can be really expensive)
    -Regular recovery strap such as Rhino or similar

    I like having both because they each server a purpose and can be used many ways, if you are stuck between what size to get(17k lbs vs 24k lbs) I usually go with the more heavy duty one. But lots of people get by with lighter weight. But that comes with having the right size shackle to use with the gear. You don't want to try to use a 3" wide recovery rope with a tiny shackle.

    Just to throw it out there, I always pack a tent, sleeping bags, and extra food... Just in case you gotta spend the night.
    Everything I say is fully substantiated by my own opinion.

    I looked at the ARB bag. If I don't buy the bag or shackles (which I have), I can build the kit with the same stuff for around $215, which is totally doable. Thanks!
