As a keen 4x4er and offroad traveller, I value the importance of being prepared for my adventures. Having the right gear on board can be the difference between enjoying my trip or being stranded and at worst putting me and my family at risk.
We have seen it all so often, particularly on beaches- drivers cruise out on the beach with full tyre pressures and as soon as they hit some softer sand they bog down and become stuck. Its easy to do and no matter how good a driver you are or how equipped your 4×4 is- it still happens! Even if you have done all the right things.
Basic recovery gear is a snatch strap, some rated bow shackles, a shovel etc. These will usually get you out of most situations, providing you have another vehicle to assist. But what if you dont? What if you are the only car on the beach or you find yourself stuck when touring in remote areas?
This is where a set of TRED recovery boards are one of the best investments you can have and carry with you on your adventures. The idea is simple but the design is very clever.
You may have seen them around, their bright colours usually mean you cant miss them.
