Having the means to go off-road is only one of the many essentials needed when venturing out into the wilderness. Going down a dusty, sandy, muddy, or snowy trail with just a set of wheels isn't going to be enough if you or a trail mate ends up getting stuck. Recovery gear is always going to make the top of the list when figuring out what items are going to take up your very limited cargo space. Off-road recoveries are just part of the game - that is why Rugged Ridge supplies a modern solution to an age old problem! As you may know, polyester straps are only good for towing and nylon straps generally need to be replaced after only a handful of uses, but nylon recovery ropes can be used over and over again! Kinetic energy ropes are now considered one of the best items to keep with your recovery kit! With this rope, you will get two reinforced looped ends, like with most effective straps on the market, but the rope's elasticity will not fatigue anywhere as fast as that of a nylon strap. Plus, the kinetic energy transfer is generally as smooth as it is effective!
This kinetic energy rope is 7/8" in diameter and 30 feet long with a breaking strength of 30,000 lb and a working load limit (WLL) of 7,500 lb! Also available from Rugged Ridge is this handy Cinch Bag for easy storage of the Kinetic Recovery Rope, or you can opt to purchase them together in the Kinetic Recovery Rope Kit! Rugged Ridge provides a five year limited warranty on their products and we offer free standard shipping on all orders! Give us a call or chat with us today to order your Rugged Ridge recovery gear!

Always purchase the appropriate rated recovery gear for your vehicle and remember to exercise safety precautions and plan out every step before engaging in every single recovery. No two recoveries are alike, and each operation requires careful planning so you can perform a safe recovery operation. If you are unsure of what capacity you need or need help selecting a pre-assembled recovery kit or building one just for you, please give our team a call or chat with us online and we will be happy to help!
Always exercise extreme caution during any recovery operation. Check and double check all of your recovery gear before each use and again after use, to look for any damage to your Rugged Ridge Kinetic Recovery Rope. It is extremely important to never use a damaged rope! Once your gear is inspected, read on for information on how to properly connect the Recovery Rope to your intended recovery points and attempt a safe and successful recovery.
To begin, wear winching or mechanic gloves to protect your hands and always use the correct sized kinetic recovery rope for the job. Then, prepare for recovery by hooking your kinetic tow rope to low points on the vehicle in need of recovery and the vehicle doing the recovering. Always begin attempting recovery with a kinetic rope by pulling the rope snug. This is referred to as a static pull. Slowly accelerate to see if the stuck vehicle will start moving. If that doesn’t get the job done, try backing toward the stuck vehicle by 3-4 feet and slowly drive forward at no more than 10 mph with a running start, until your vehicle begins to slow, letting tension in the rope draw tight. Next, let off the gas, hold the brakes, and let the built-up kinetic energy transfer to the disabled vehicle to see if it moves. If the stuck vehicle still isn't budging, try backing up a little closer still, and again attempt recovery beginning with a slow running start. Be sure never to attempt a recovery with the rope at an angle to avoid injury and possibly tipping over the stuck vehicle. If this fails, you may need to try recovering with a second vehicle by pulling in tandem with a larger rope.
