4WD vehicle recovery is an inescapable element of driving off road. Preparing yourself for the inevitable before heading to the backcountry will ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for you and your passengers. ARB's 4x4 recovery gear is engineered and manufactured to the highest standards, making it ideal for recreational use as well as competition.
When the only thing preventing your vehicle from imminent danger is a narrow fabric strap, nothing but the best will do. Don't trust your vehicle to substandard recovery gear that could jeopardize your safety and your vehicle. Likewise, make sure you're using appropriate equipment for your situation. The old adage "the right tool for the job" can certainly be applied to vehicle recovery. For every situation, there is an article of recovery gear specifically designed to handle the task - from snatch straps to exhaust jacks.
This ability to stretch is a distinction between a snatch strap and a tow strap, ARB snatch straps are elastic when under load whereas a tow strap is not, the benefits of which are twofold. Firstly, the kinetic energy generated by the elasticity actually aids the recovery itself, and secondly, the elasticity greatly reduces the likelihood of vehicle damage during recovery. The enormous weight of each 4x4 and the weighted force of whatever caused the immobilization puts enormous strain on the point where the straps are attached, and without some elasticity, there is a substantial risk of damaging the vehicle. For vehicle recovery, a snatch strap is more suitable than a tow strap.
All ARB snatch straps are woven and fabricated to ARB specifications, and tested by a NATA approved laboratory. The 17,500 lb model is recommended for most 4WD vehicles, with the 24,000 lb & 33,000 lb straps better suited to heavier applications.
The ARB Premium Recovery Kit (P/No. RK9US) is not suitable for all vehicles. Please verify your recovery working loads before ordering the kit. ARB recommends using a snatch strap that is 3-4x the vehicle weight, therefore, ARB recommends this kit for vehicles 5,600lbs and under.
Perfect for Jeep Wranglers, small pick-ups like the Toyota Tacoma and small SUVs like the FJ Cruiser, Nissan Xterra and Toyota 4Runner.
