I would suggest getting recovery points for both the front and rear in case you do get stuck. First aid kit, basic tools, flashlight, tow strap, etc. Oh, and at least one other vehicle to go along. Safer and more fun that way.

^^ X2 - Recovery points (tow hooks etc) and your own tow strap is a must.. Other than that.. some guts and a buddy is always good.

Always have a friend (in a diff truck) along and a tow strap is a must! An small box of tools is nice! And plenty of water!
