    Master Pull Black Friday through Cyber Monday - 20% off

    The original Super Yanker is military spec, and has a slightly better fiber. They both have the same stretch and breaking strength characteristics though. That said, 7/8" in either the original or KOBRA is perfect for a Tacoma.

    Recovery Bag options (other than an ARB bag)...

    If you haven't already, be sure to give our line of gear bags a look. They're all made from water resistant vinyl and come with a sturdy plastic insert that sits in the bottom of the bag to help protect against the problem you've described. I have a small bag that is filled with my shackles...

    Winch or alternative options

    It really is hard to beat the ease and convenience of a winch. If you're looking into budget winches, make sure you take a look at Warn's VR series. The VR8000 and VR10000 can both be had for less than $600, and I've seen them in the $400s before. Other than that, bust out the come-along...

    How high up can I mount my hawse fairlead?

    This is something to consider. Whether you're running wire or synthetic rope, an 1/8" radius isn't enough and is likely to cause line failure. The cost of an extra fairlead now is better than having to get your line repaired or replaced sometime down the road. As zimm said, ideally the line...

    Aramid rope vs Amsteel Blue vs "Plasma"

    You could also look at the Superline, and Superline XD. Working temp range is -238F to 176F, and melting point begins at 291F. I don't have the working range of the other lines in front of me to compare though. -Daren

    Aramid rope vs Amsteel Blue vs "Plasma"

    FYI, we'll have safety thimbles back in stock pretty soon, and can equip the Amsteel Blue ropes with them. Sometime in the next week or so I've been told.

    Reversing Synthetic Winch Rope

    Yup, that's how we do it up here. Amsteel flattens out pretty good on the drum under load. It doesn't affect the strength of it at all, but it does look a little odd. Also, Amsteel and Master Pull ropes purchased through Master Pull have a sleeve that goes on the initial wrap to protect the...

    Fire Extinguishers

    I try to keep a few with me all the time, but it is best to have something within reach of the driver and then something larger in case you need to tackle a larger fire. -Alex
