    I know there was a recent post on this, but I did a search and couldn't find it. What kind of big, badass tow ropes do you guys have and where did you get them?

    I have a 30 ft by 6 inch wide Keeper Strap. I got mine at Quality Farm and Fleet. It was around $50.

    I have run the Superwinch and Explorer Procomp straps. The Superwinch is a lifetime warrantied strap, but when I sent my first one back shreaded from hard pulling they sent me a replacing and said they would replace another one. :(

    My next tow ope will be from Master Pull, one of their SUper Yankers! Check them out at: http://www.masterpull.com

    I have a 25X2.5 I got at NH Northern. It was around $14. They have good prices. I got my creeper there for $14 too.

    Tractor Supply rocks - there's one about 0 minutes from my house. You can find ANYTHING you might need somewhere in there.

    I'v never had a need for one. How come people that I pull out of mud holes have them? I notice ford and jeeps carry them all the time. Do Blazers really get stuck????

    You've got a point there. I have ALMOST been stuck a few times, but I can always wiggle my way out. I have used it to help a friend yank bushes out of his neighbor's yard[​IMG], but thats it...

    Well my ratio of yanking people out to needing to be yanked out seems to be about 10 to 1. But if your not getting stuck, your not trying hard enough![​IMG]
    I usually carry a couple of yank straps for others though, cuz I'm such a nice guy![​IMG] Thats the price you have to pay for wheeling with guys that don't have the sense to buy a K5!

    Its 4" wide and 30 feet long, as far as pulling to pulled ratio I'm way ahead in the pulling, but I must admit I've been real glad to be pulled when that wiggling just don't make it.....now if I can just talk my wife into letting me spend that $900 on the <font color=red>900 hundred dollar rope</font color=red> as my wife calls it (X9000i)[​IMG]...

    my bbest friends dad picks us up straps from work. (shipping depot) I dont know what they're really for, but if it's free, its for me! they are 4 inches wide, 15 feet long, and we get as many as we need. i carry 4 with me. i dont know what they are rated at either, but we've never busted one.
