A few weeks ago, we showed you how to get a car unstuck yourself, using a shovel and traction aids. But what happens if you’ve gotten yourself so stuck that that method won’t work? Wes Siler is here to show you the safe way to use one vehicle to snatch another out of a sticky situation. The right gear is very important in these scenarios. The strap and shackles you see Siler using come in the ARB Weekender recovery kit. This shackle hitch receiver fits any two-inch receiver, and you’ll also need a hitch pin. Front recovery points are trickier. You may find one in your vehicle’s tool kit that screws into a hole in the front bumper, but for some rigs, you may need to add them yourself. The best way to do that is splurging on an aftermarket bumper, like those made by ARB.
