If you’re looking to test your new 4WD SUV, Jeep, or Truck you need to get off road and find a rough road. There’s no better place to feel a little free than on an unpaved back road. That said, you need to ensure you’ve got a 4×4 Recovery Gear bag that is sufficient for your adventures. Whether you drive into the mountains, desert, beaches, or snow forests, you’ll need the appropriate 4×4 Recovery Gear.

Heavy Duty 4WD Recovery Tow Strap – 4×4 Recovery Gear

When you’re looking to get out of a stuck spot there are few things that work better than recovery straps. They are an affordable option compared to installing a winch on your vehicle if you don’t have one. Tow Straps are also very easy to pack in your truck or SUV, making them very versatile. Vault Cargo Management’s tow straps are made of heavy-duty 3″ durable webbing that is resistant to rock, timber, and dirt abrasions. With a 30,000 Lb towing capacity which is about 2-3 times the weight of an average vehicle. Plus with two triple reinforced end loops, you can attach shackles to the straps making them much safer and stronger than hooks.

Backed with a lifetime warranty you’ll never need another tow strap to get you unstuck. The strap is a very versatile 20′ tow strap that provides plenty of distance between the tow vehicle and stuck vehicle. As a result, you won’t find yourself hitting bumpers once unstuck.

Rugged Shackle 2-Pack  – 4×4 Recovery Gear

Shackles are one of the most important 4×4 recovery gear purchases needed for your 4WD adventures. Far better than a hook, shackles provide a closed loop to attach, tow straps, tree savers, snatch blocks, and winches. For only a few dollars each, you can have some of the toughest pins and rings when recovering your vehicle. Vault Cargo Managment’s shackles are made of 3/4″ drop forged steel for extreme toughness. The pin is a 7/8″ sold steel pin which provides extreme durability.

Due to the fact that these will be dragged or hit the ground when towing, they are powder coated in black to serve as a rust prevention layer. That said, Vault’s shackles carry a robust 9,500 lb towing capacity strong enough to help recovery any SUV, Jeep, or Truck.

Tough Tree Saver  – 4×4 Recovery Gear

Considering most Jeep and SUV owners tend to have a winch when they start exploring the backcountry. They assume they have what they need to get themselves unstuck. That is a great theory, however, what many don’t know is you can simply attach a winch hook to a tree or rock without causing damage to your cable. Even though, winch cable is made of steel. It can still fray, kink, and rip if you slide it against rough surfaces under load. Therefore, a tree saver tow strap comes in as one of the best 4×4 recovery gear items you can pick up for a winch.

For only a few dollars a tree saver is going to extend the life of your winch cable as well as prevent any damage to rocks or trees. This is extremely important if you plan on heading out to any state or National Parks, as it’s best to not cause damage to the land or forest. A Tree Saver Tow Strap is one of the best investments and it takes up very little space in your off road gear bag.

Great Gear, Great Team

When you buy any 4×4 recovery gear from Vault Cargo Management, you aren’t buying from someone that can’t support you after your purchase. The great thing is you also aren’t buying it from a behemoth corporate conglomerate fueled by private equity money that simply doesn’t care.

Vault Cargo Management falls somewhere in the middle. We’re proud to say we’ve become one of the fastest growing companies in the country because of it. We started out small, and have grown organically from there. We’re definitely getting bigger, but we aren’t leaving our small-town Green Bay, WI roots behind.

From our design team to our customer support folks, you’re working with people you’d likely want to have a beer with. We hire folks that show strong, midwesterner values & our feedback proves that it’s appreciated.
