BINGO, that looks like a good Recovery (snatch) strap-

Just remember, it's not a TOW rope, but looks like the right recovery strap !!

It's actually low rated for the size...some jeepruns we've been on require a minimum of 20,000 pound rating, I had some special made ones done with 30,000 rating.
Remember...a wrangler (without extra mods) weighs in around 4500# or more...cherokee heavier. And if you add a snatch block you've increased pull on the strap by double. Then if you are trying to snatch someone straight 'up' a ledge, it's even more pull.
Yes, you got a good deal, price is good unless you paid a lot for freight...because for $29 you can get a 20,000# one from Tractor Supply and no freight.
But the color....THAT won't get lost in the snowbank!

You could've done better; you could've done worse.
There are new standards for recovery straps regarding markings; the ARBs are color-coded in their own way.

I like this one the best. Between 100% and 200% more "snap" than flat straps.

Should be NO SNAP in flat straps, ever...they aren't made for 'snapping' a vehicle out. Gradual pull to get them tight, then drag/drive it out...never 'snap' a loose flat strap. (Got that from attending 'winching and strapping 101 course at JJ)....but the snap strap Hilldweller shows are awesome-saw them used on JJ for the first time. We were all using flat straps in the gooiest mud I've ever been in, had to winch the front vehicle to a tree, then strap to the vehicle behind...then pull both with winch...until one guy with a snap strap came up...wow...those things are amazing. Laid it on the ground, hooked onto the next rig, had about 20 feet of room to get moving and when that strap stretched out the rig just slide right out of the ooze. Whenever my strap is due for replacement I'm going for a snap strap...unless my wife gives in and lets me get one anyways if I can find someplace to store it...been in plenty of places where the long flat strap ended up as extra length for the winch or to do an 'angled' pull off a tree around a corner. Just not enough room in the TJ for all the stuff I want...

crappy,
well paying for freight is rather normal for me up here in Canada, all this sweet free freight you guys in the States get is a dream to us up here.
