Hi all,
Any recommendations for tow straps for jeepin on the beach? It's required in order for me to get a beach/dune permit along with a few other things. As this is my first Wrangler i've never done this type of driving before. Appreciate your recommendations. Thx!

Ditto with DRB. DON'T get the tow straps with any type of metal hooks. If they bust, those hooks can cause catastrophic endings.

I would get a recovery strap (snatch strap) and not a tow strap. Recovery straps are for pulling out stuck vehicles.

There are less expensive options. Smittybilt has a good one in the low $30's.
Thanks. Wasn't sure if 30k lbs. was too strong. I remember reading somewhere that too strong a strap wouldn't give enough. Still learning about all this so I might be wrong or remembering incorrectly.

These straps have a place, they can be used to pull out a car with out a tow hook.
You can slide the hooks in recesses on both side of the frame and pull it out that way
