Recovery straps

Need some advice from the experts. I have a Warn 2x30' recovery strap I keep in the jeep. I have used it many times and it has been great. I'm thinking about getting another strap to keep in the jeep encase I need longer than 30' (I can loop them together) or encase I need two straps etc...etc...etc.. I plan on getting a winch soon to.

Now What would you do if you already had a 30' strap. Would you get a 20' strap so you have two different sizes or would you get another 30 so if you need two straps to hook on both tow points front or rear the straps are the same size. I'm looking at getting a rokemen recovery strap and the 20' is $20 cheaper than the 30'. I'm not trying to pinch pennies at all but what would be a better option to compliment my 30' strap.

I would get the 20' one and have a different length. Like you said you can always loop them together.

I also would go with the 20' but if you need to put them togher its best to use a shackel becouse some times when you loop two straps togher you end up with one long one. Trust me I found out the hard way a few years back.
I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.

^ haha I've done that as well. Managed to pry it apart after a while but definitely use a shackle or something when connecting because it sucks pulling them apart after a good recovery.

Just keep your head down. If one strap fails you're going to have a shackle doing mach 2 towards one of the vehicles...

x2, I would just loop the straps together and place a rolled up magazine (I use a wooden dowel) or towel strategically in the loop so that they can become undone easily.

Id go with the 20' strap, youll hardly need to be more then 40' away from the stuck vehicle.

Like everyone has said never use a shakle in the middle, go with a rolled up newspaper or magazine, one less way to get someone hurt and killed in an already dangerous situation!
