Thanks for the link, it's very good to know the difference. Since mine has hooks on each end does that make it a tow rope ? Because I thought I bought a recovery rope. What do you consider yours to be ?

Please let me know. There must be alot of people using a tow rope incorrectly and risking injury. Should have one of each on hand just in case.

It is a tow rope, I've got a small strap in my truck that I've been using as a tow rope so haven't had to break out the heavy duty one yet, but this whole topic reminds me that I should invest in a recovery strap, just to be on the safe side don't need one of those hooks to slip off and come flying at my truck, while doing a good deed for a chevy or ford owner.

This is so true, I am going to do the same. I was actually a bit concerned pulling out that root yesterday. I had visions of that hook letting go and hitting my windshield. Would have put me in a real bad mood. Thanks for the tips and the website link. I'm sure others will also benefit from this post. Note that I gave you some rep points for that posting.

Ya if that hook would have let go, that would be enough to put anyone in a bad mood. Try to spread the word on that one, and save some RAM's from damage. Thanks for the rep points!
