I carry both the Super Strap and a Yank'um in the truck. A smaller super strap in the SXS.
The Yankum uses kinetic energy and is amazing. It's mostly for towing stuck friends. I hook to my vehicle and they hook the other end to theirs and if any damage it's on them.

Sometimes I get the knock at the RV door and someone is stuck in the desert. If they have a good point to connect to I may help. Way too easy to ruin someone's vehicle if you don't do it right.

Notice how you put a little slack in the rope then go forward to Yank. The rope works with kinetic energy. It's a theory that really works.

Way better than a non-stretchy strap.

Make sure you have a tow point on your death trap front and rear. That should be a day two upgrade.

I have a regular tow strap and a couple axle straps in my box. I may upgrade to the stretching style tow strap.
