I forgot to mention in the video that when doing recoveries and using tow straps,bubba ropes etc it's best to pull from the back of your vehicle because your driveline is designed to be the strongest in forward motion not in reverse. I also forgot to mention that whenever possible its best to pull the vehicle back through it's own tracks and not through what got it stuck in the first place,if thats what's needed.
