Random question!

Does anyone wrap their towstrap around their bumper? Im thinking about doing it for looks and it will be easier and faster to have a buddy pull me out. Any pics?

I would not do that. UV (sunlight) will deteriorate it. Mud/Dirt will deteriorate it. Can be cut and snagged and be damaged. Can be stolen.

Maybe if you are out wheeling you might wrap it around the bumper. Other than that put it away.

when i'm wheeling, i hook it to my tow hook and throw it in the back of the jeep, this way when i (or the guy behind me) gets stuck it is already hooked up.

Out on the trail, absolutely. Especially if you're in mud or deep water, that way you don't have to crawl through the muck. On the street? Just put a big sign on the front that says poser.
