Towing / Pulling Rig
Not sure how many folks keep a winch or tow ropes in their car. I'd expect it with most pickup / jeep owners, but the average driver, probably not.

I decided to use some the vast space in my Outback to store a come-along and 60 feet of tow ropes.

The tow ropes are most like seat belt style and have a 6000lb capacity.

Last weekend, I did a test at a park and experimented as to the manual winch force to pull my car around. Didn't take too much effort with brakes applied even.

Some of you may do this on a regular basis or have experience in such, but it's all new to me!

Those are expensive straps. To bad we don't have a Rural King near us. I picked up a similar strap for $4.99 a few weeks back. Have only had to use it once so far but worked great.

The straps I have were about $20 each; which didn't seem too bad to me in price. You got yours for $5; what capacity?

They are better than using chains.
