my winch bag is starting to feel complete :)

Recommended Posts

to go along with my new winch (a 5k mounted on the Liberty) I got a snatch block and tree saver for christmas. :D  technically the tree saver is a $22 lifting strap (3" wide, 4' long), but it's rated for 33k so I feel it'll do the job. :L:  

 

so my recovery bag now contains:

3"x30' yank strap

4' tree saver (I'd get a 6' if I do it again)

snatch block

remote for winch

various clevises

clevis adapter for hitch

thick leather gloves

spare hook

spare hitch pin

14' logger chain (not actually in the bag since it has a specific home in the Libby)

 

I carry a crap-ton of other things that are always in the Jeep with my other tools (safety glasses, hammer, shovel, a weight for the winch line, etc), this bag represents things that are only used for recovery and winch stuff.

next step is to flesh out the bumper and move the lights.

A 4' strap wouldn't go around a lot of the trees here. :laugh:

 

 

Edit, I use a 20'.  Because it's what I have more than really needing a 20'.  But longer is normally better, and you can always wrap it a second time if you're somehow too close.

haha, yeah that became obvious once I opened it up  :roflmao:  but, hey, gift horses and all that.  :D  The liberty is more utility than toy when it comes to winch use anyways so it should be fine for now.
