I like that "hand wench" idea. I need to get me one of those...hehe

A good starting point would be a basic set of tools, duct tape, nylon tie straps, electrical wire, fuses, assorted nuts and bolts, alternator belt, spare tire......... The list of essentials is countless and guranteed no matter what you bring, you will have left the all important "part or tool" at home. It never fails.

Undoubtedly the best item you can bring offroad, is a friend...in their own car....with a tow strap. Words to live by.

Duct tape and WD-40.

If it moves and it isn't supposed to - duct tape.

If it doesn't move and it should - WD-40.
