Lightbulb How to pull people out of snow?

What all do I need if I want to pull cars out of snow!
I have a tj with 2 front hooks and 1 rear.
I was planning on buying this things
1 strap
2 shackles

Tow Strap by Smittybilt and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware
Shackle D-Ring by Smittybilt and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware

Is that all I need?
Also where to you attach the strap in a car?

I might be able to make enough money to get my winch that ways! lol.
Thanks

multiple size shackles, and chains for your tires pending on conditions. lots of times people dont have tow points.

I usually let the prson being pulled out to hook up their own vehicle that way if something happens on their end it's on them not on me,unless it would be a little ole lady then I would hook it for her,just my 2 cents.

I sure as heck wouldn't do it for money. Forget about the fact it's taking advantage of someone's misfortune (just be a good guy already), but once you accept money you've gone beyond 'helping out' and you could be held responsible for any damages. (think... car runs off road, gets thrown out of alignment, but owner thinks you did something) If you're going to help out, then great - I do it to, but help out and know that what goes around comes around so good fortune should meet you in the future.

+1 here as well. Back in College my Brother got a new FX4 F150. A buddy of mine had his girlfriends Hyundai santa fe stuck in a new development that they were moving out to...he tried going down an undeveloped alley, and found a deep puddle.

Anywho, my Brother ended up pulling not only the Santa Fe out, but also a F250 dually, and then there was this brand new explorer which was buried. My brother being moderately intelligent had the owner strap up his own car...the explorer got out of the mud, but the lower control arm was now less attached...

Oh thats just a fun thing I said. I agree I am not gonna charge money for this. I don't want someone to come after me or think jeepers are uncool!

I just want to be able to pull someone out just in case. Since I dont have money for Winch, I bought a tow strap and 2 shackles for starters. They just might come in handy if I know what to do with them when one of my buddy calls.

Ya Unless I am starting a insured towing business, I am not gonna charge people. But I remember one of my friends eclipse got stuck and we spend 3 hours waiting for a tow truck!(charged like 260 bucks! It was stuck bad) Thats when someone might call me, not when tow truck can get there faster.

Hey
Most people in the city get stuck
or plowed in a parking spot.
When we get back to back good snows
cars can have snow up to the roof
It can take hours to dig out
offer to help and they will just
offer to give you something for your trouble

Yea I have pulled a few people out in IL. If they give you money they give you money but never expect it. I don't mind helping out at all either.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

99° here in Boulder yesterday.
Not sure if your post cooled me off a bit, or makes me all mad to think summer is going fast.

Actually,
The authorities that be up here in WI have made it a no-no to help your fellow man out of ditches and such...Lol!

I pull no one out of the ditch and push no one of the median. If there stuck the tow truck will be on its way. Sounds horrible, I know!
There are just to many variables now in this day and age. To many sue happy turds and to many many people wishing your junk was theres.

Ugh!
