If you are mostly alone, who would there be to unstuck you with the recovery straps? I would instead hookup with some fellow Jeepers or local Jeep club to not have to go alone in the first place. Bad things can happen on the trail other than just getting stuck-even say you trip over your own feet and break an arm for example. And if your Jeep starts going sideways, a few guys may be able to help and push it unsideways-how can you do that by yourself?

Even with a winch, one person is only one person. We had a rig bust on the trail yesterday. There were a bunch of guys who knew how to fix it had tools to at least get off trail and everyone brought a "piece" of knowledge. One guy only gives you one piece of knowledge...

If you must wheel alone, always tell someone exactly where you will be and a return time - and instruct them to send help if you are not back on pavement by then.

An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure sometimes.

Fact is...he does wheel alone. OP watch the youtube video in this thread. I found it helpful to understand the science behind winching yourself backwards. Most people understand winching yourself forwards. If I were building a recovery kit to off road alone, I would have 3 snatch blocks, 3 tree savers/recovery straps, a winch, and a handful of D-shackles. Do you already have a winch?

warn premium snatch block

I have that kit but I don't remember paying that much for it, got it on Amazon. It's decent but nothing special.

I think I have one on the way. Some order problems. Jcr bumper at powder coasters now. Just want something I can count on with out breaking the bank. If need be I will buy the expensive brands. But if I can get something comparable for less without paying for the name. I will go that way
