Which rope would you go with?

Freedom Rope? or Zeritoof?

The freedom rope is a larger diameter at 1" over 7/8 and both kits come with soft shackles. There is almost $100 difference between the two. In 14 years of Baja in my jeep I was never stuck in the sand, but that's a lightweight vehicle. I know I know buy once cry once but I just cried over the Triple Fog light kit I just got with the Baja Pro's. Gotta save some money somewhere....Is this the place to cut?

Minimum of 1"

I wouldn't look to same money while buying recovery gear. Take the wife to McDonald's and order off the dollar menu instead of Ruth Chris.
Once I saw the 1" minimum I went with the Freedom Rope and Soft Shackles. Now to go outside and use my new Pro Eagle for a tire rotation and install the E&G split console safe. Appreciate all the help here.

here, on frf
Now what are you using for tow straps next? I figure it will just have to be the Freedom rope and tow straps and a shovel. The MaxTraxx will have to wait for now. Super excited about the lighting coming in.
i have an arb tow strap. its big strap. probably 4in wide and 30ft long. has a 30k rating. whatever tow strap you get, i always recommend getting one at least 3 times the weight of the vehiicle. need the extra headroom fo the "yanks" i have yanked pretty hard getting trucks unstuck. they work better on ice compared to the kinetic. the kinetic acts as a rubber band. pulled me right back to where i was. the strap wont stretch much so all the force is transferred to the stuck vehicle.
