what to put in the bag

What do you all have in your recovery bags, or thrown in the back of the trucks to use when you get struck. To date this is what I have:

48 inch High Lift
2 d-shackles 3/4 inch
Recovery strap 9000 lbs
Tree strap. Don't have a winch yet so it's just for looks
Shovel
2 sections of carpet 2x4
Gloves

Simple but effective.

Chuck.

If you don't have a winch yet, then there are a few good accessories for the hi-lift you can get.. they have a winch kit for it, so you can use it as a come-along to pull yourself out.. then there is the wheelmate or whatever its called.. it has three hooks on it, and you can lift the truck by the rim.. very helpful if you dont have good jack points all around.

I personally carry entirely too much in my disco2, between recovery gear, spare parts, tools, first aid, etc.. but its the one day that I don't bring it all, is when i'll break down or get stuck and not be able to get myself out.

Can you buy the hi-lift winch kit without buying the gloves, tree strap, and bag? I really just want the chain portion.

What about those yank ropes? Has anyone ever used one and do they work?

Kris,

You can just buy the chain @ expedition exchange. They are about $50.00.

I have three tree straps and have have had to use all three @ once multiple times, 2 snatch blocks/winch pulley's, high lift, gloves, 2- 20000 lb kinetic straps and two shackles in addition to the three mounted on the truck. I also keep a 4 ton come-along in the truck just incase I get into some off camber situation. I dont use chain anymore-tore up to much stuff.

The carpet sounds like a good idea.

Clarification:

The chain is to tow other people with, like all the way home. I have a winch, tree strap, shackles, gloves and other stuff for self recovery.

Since I have a stock bumper, is there away to add additional recovery points to it so I don't have to crawl under my truck every time I get stuck?? It the bumper strong enough to handle these??
