Every off-roader gets stuck. It's going to happen, and you may as well know as much as you can to prepare yourself. This section deals with vehicle recovery techniques, equipment, and, because of the inherent risk of damage to property and personal injury, lists some safety issues. The reference section provides additional theory on winching not included here.

Snatch Ropes are a powerful recovery aid that use an elastic-band effect to help get you unstuck.

Hi-lift Jacks are rugged, versatile jacks that allow you to lift a vehicle out of ruts and ditches or to winch it over an obstacle.
Winches Winches
Winches are versatile self-help tools, both for pulling loads and for vehicle recovery.
