ARB Premium Recovery Kit

Anyone use this on their JK? (I know it's a "universal" kit).

ARB RK9US Premium Recovery Kit : Amazon.com : Automotive

Any feedback? Any concerns with their setup? Anything it's missing?

I've got one, included the ARB tire repair kit, not seeing it on that link.
Honestly the only thing I ever use out of the whole kit is the short green strap.

The orange and purple straps are way too long for the trails around here. Our jeeps are usually really cose when pulling each other out of the muck so the shorty strap sees all the action.

We all have shackles front and rear so never use those. The pully looks cool but never tried it same with the tire pressure gauge. Gloves are just leather work gloves. Tire repair kit has a cool t handle prison shank looking thing but I carry a spare and simply unseat beads at low psi more than anything else.

I'd just get the ARB green strap and skip the rest.
Awsome kit but more gear than I ever use. Winch and single strap have gotten me out of every sticky situation so far.

It looks like a pretty complete kit, however, for what you would use I think it may be a little overkill and you could definately get what you need for a lot less. It looks like a nice kit but maybe a little overpriced/overkill.

When I purchased my Warn 12k winch on my last truck (about 14 years ago) they were running a promo and got the recovery set all in a nice Warn bag otherwise I would have put my own together a peice at a time.

For the most part I would have a snatch block, tree saver strap, medium lenght tow strap, and maybe an anchor chain. The "D" rings are great but you could get those at a Grainger or watch for sales at off-road stores. You should be able to put together a nice assortment for quite a bit less money.

Cool. I'll definitely give Granger a look. I have a friend who works there (at least I think she still does...)
