Winch

When you own a 4x4 or SUV vehicle, it is a good idea to install an aftermarket winch on you vehicle. A truck winch can be used to pull your vehicle out of the mud when it gets stuck without having to rely on a tow truck or someone else to get you out. All you have to do is find a sturdy tree and hook up the cable from the winch and turn it on. Your vehicle will be pulled out of the mud and back up onto the road, allowing you to continue enjoying your day of off road driving.

In areas where it snows, you should also have a winch available on your truck because you can easily slide off icy and slippery roads and get stuck. Instead of having to wait in the cold and pay a fortune for a towing company to pull you out, you can handle this situation on your own and still make it home in time for dinner. If you have your own winch and tow cord available you might even be able to offer assistance for other stranded motorists.

A winch will come with different ratings for the amount of maximum weight they can safely pull and you will need to consider this rating when making a selection between the different electric winches available.
