    What is everyone using for a good pull stap? I broke mine this past weekend. I had one that was about 2 or 3" wide and was one of those that would strech I've had it for a couple of years and it has always worked fine. The thing that makes me mad is the guy didn'teven offer to buy me a new strap and if it wasn't for me he would of been spending a cold wet night in the middle of nowhere. Thanks in advance

    I can't believe no one has any suggestions. I live in a very small town and rely on input from this board , so come on guys hook me up on where I can find a good one.

    I got mine at 4 Wheel Parts and it has served me good. It is the Canyon Crawler 3"x30' strap. I've heard that Tractor Supply Company sells straps for a good price also.

    My bud is bragging about this 6 inch wide 30 foot strap he got free from the body shop towing joint he works at. I'll find out what/where and get back to ya.

    Atwoods has some REALLY heavy duty ones, like 4-6 in wide and really thick, but you will lay your money down for it, they have like 4 diff ones, $50 i THINK was most expensive

    $50 bucks isn't bad for a good strap. The 4" Pro-Comp ones run about $80!

    With your setup I'd go for the 3" strap and at LEAST 20 feet of it, 30 feet would be optimal. (I've got a 60' rope and sometimes that doesn't even seem like enough!) I know $50 for a decent strap sounds like a lot, but only until the first time you get to roll out on the beach and pull out the stock Jeep full of hot chicks or you get stuck and are able to be extracted. One or two uses pays for it.
