Stuck in a rut? The Recovery Utility Tool (RUT) from Smittybilt is a must-have accessory for anyone that goes off-road! Before breaking out your winch line, you might just need to do a little digging to gain enough traction needed to get out of a bind. This foldable military style shovel is 9" when collapsed for easy storage, and expands to a fully functional 23" shovel when needed. The spade can be adjusted to two positions, allowing you to do more digging in a shorter amount of time! It is made with heat treated carbon steel to be extremely tough, and the handle is crafted from fiber reinforced nylon, so it should remain useful in your toolkit for years and years.
