all depends on how bad you get stuck...noting really to do with towing capacity.....bring a come-along if you are really worried about it.
 






it just worries me because its a 4 banger
 






Its all depends on the type of recovery. Just for example, a few years ago, JDraper pulled me out with his Zuki. Essentially, when you are using a tow strap, make sure you give your truck gas when the other truck starts moving. A Come along will also help in some situations. Make sure you get one rated for atleast 3 tons.
 






ok thanks guys, if i zuk pulled out and xplorer i think a heep could
 






yeah, it all depends on how stuck you are, my friend got stuck in his superduty up to the cab and we couldnt pull him out with a combination of my ex and some friend's wrangler with a v8 durango in tandem. jackalls are a wonderful thing fot those situations, but i've seen a liberty help out a big rig that was stuck in snow
