Where to get this strap?

Walmart.com: SmartStraps 4" x 30' 40,000-lb Recovery Strap: Automotive

My local Walmarts don't carry it.

Anyone have a link (anystore) to where I can get this?

I wouldn't buy it from any Walmart...they list it as 40,000#, but the box shown says in big numbers 10,000!
Check out the nearest Tractor Supply Store, VIP Auto, Autozone, etc.-I've seen straps occasionally in them on sale in the weekly flyers and right on the packages rated 20,000# and up. 4" wide is way more than you need-3" is fine. You're not going to be pulling tanks...with a jeep!

Any local auto parts store (NAPA, Autozone, Advanced Auto, etc...) should have a selection. Get something in a reasonable load range, too. The straps are built for a given stretch over their load range. The stretch helps to soften the blow of a hard recovery pull. You are going to get VERY low stretch out of a 4" strap between two wranglers, and increase the chance of tweaking a bumper/frame. A 2" to 2.5" will hold up just fine, and give you enough stretch.

Maybe Harbor Freight

I use a ProComp 3" strap.

Sure, it costs twice as much as the SmittyBilt strap. Still, this was the first tow strap I ever purchased and it has provided faithful service in six Jeeps (and other vehicles whenever I was "between" Jeeps) over the years. Buying it cheap means buying it twice; I have no regrets for doing it right the first time.

Depends on useage.
I wouldn't trust Harbor Freight, Shittybuilt, er, Smittybuilt, or Walmart for any strap I had to use twice. Once? They're OK.

For repeated use, get Warn.

For a nice middle ground, something that's used multiple times, but not everyday, then ProComp is good.

For a nice alternative option, look up MasterPull winch line. They've got a 'strap' that's pretty darn cool.
