My preference is to help. I try and get feel for the person and the situation. If you have a brand new Porsche or Mercedes sorry, I'm not gonna risk it. Difficulty of extraction plays a part to. I'm more likely to do a simple tug than anything that involves bad angles, multiple lines etc. Even then it depends. Are you a fellow Jeeper or camper? How far out in the boonies? Wife and kids pleading for help? Blocking the trail?
I carry a big hook so I can usually find a place to attach but its so much nicer to see real attachment points on a vehicle.
Oh, and if you're the guy that passed me doing 50 on icy roads while I'm creeping along at 25 and I see you in the ditch? Not helping.
