Ordered from them this afternoon before I left work and got an email that the snatch strap shipped just as I left the office! Now that's awesome! I assume I'll have it near the end of the week or so!

yup, Will over there is great to deal with.....I will always buy recovery gear and Offroad accessories from him.

Love the bag #2 option...Glock? I have the same shovel that was a give-away at a recent 4Wheel Parts Saturday extravaganza...I also have full size shovel to mount to roof rack when on the trail. Don't want to get the little cute one dirty but will make a great sand castle tool for the OBX trip.

Pretty sure it's not a Glock. Maybe Smith & Wesson Sigma, .40?

In arm's reach behind the driver's seat I have:

  • my winch controller,
  • a pair of gloves,
  • and a Southeast Overland 3"x8' tree strap.
I've gotten into some pretty precarious positions where I can't get out to retrieve my recovery bag from behind the driver's seat, but I can reach back to grab the tree strap and winch controller, and toss to someone to get my FJ stabilized with my winch line.

In my Southeast Overland recovery bag I have:

  • 4 Van Beest 3/4" Green Pin shackles,
  • 2 ARB 7000 blocks,
  • 1 Southeast Overland 7/8"x20' recovery rope,
  • 1 Southeast Overland 2"x20' snatch strap,
  • 1 Southeast Overland 2" receiver bracket
  • 1 Southeast Overland 3/8" soft shackle and 1 1/2" soft shackle.
I also have a Hi-Lift base under the bag.

On my Metal-tech front bumper I have a 48" Hi-Lift.

In my rear home brew storage drawers I have:

  • a slew of tie downs, ratchet straps, tools,
  • a PowerTank on top of the drawers,
  • and a set of MAXTRAX.

Very Happy

BTW - if anyone wants a sale on recovery bags and equipment I'd be happy to put a buy together for the forum.

No problem. I need to replace my drawers as they are getting a bit worn. I thought about going with a set from Tuffy but I'd like something lighter weight. I'm actually considering a piece of MDF wrapped in carpet strapped down in the back with bags and containers to hold my gear.

Thats what I was thinking too. Something sturdy that I can (probably) make myself.

1 Rectangular piece of MDF, wrap in dense carpet, fasten 4 footman loops with bolts (sink nuts), strap down to floor, and done! (well, at least that is the plan)

Sounds like a plan! The carpet might be tricky though. I did that with a sub box I built and its coming unravelled. I might just go bare wood or paint it. Thats the easy part though, I still have to figure out how to build it. lol

I built a full length sleeping and storage platform in the rear of my FJ55 Land Cruiser. I glued the carpet down with contact cement and stapled the edges thoroughly. No worries for 1.5 years.

Aah, didnt think of stapling the edges. Nice touch. Definitely stealing that tip.

Quick photos of my storage box..

I have since added smaller storage zipper bags for all these tools so they don't rattle around.
