Coyote EMT is on a distinguished road

In my opinion spend the100 bucks and buy a 6" recovery strap. They are loop ended and rated for plenty of pull. (dont know the actual rating off hand) I have one that I keep in the truck and it has pulled many trucks off the beach, heck it pulled a dually with a gooseneck loaded with a one ton duramax running 36" tires with a broken steering box two miles down the beach. no signs of stress yet. Again my opinion also try to get a loop end because in the case of failure it is only strap flying not metal hooks, also invest in a clevis or some type of heavy duty hitch (make the strap the weakest point) to save the truck or trucks
