The Recovery Equipment on our Land Rovers

 

Land Rover "Alaska"

Specifications:

Reasons:
6000-lb. winch: Can recover a stuck or disabled vehicle (up to 4080 kg)
 
Tow bar: Can pull a disabled vehicle to safety or service.
 
ARB locking rear differential: Assists 4-wheel drive in extremely poor terrain. Some say a diff-lock is more useful than a winch and I agree. ARB
is a sponsor of our AroundTheWorld1999 Expedition.
 
D Rings: To recover a stuck vehicle you need a strong anchor point to pull from. We installed D-rings and tow hooks for this purpose.
 
Hi-Lift Jack Sockets: The rear cross member (bumper) of a Land Rover doesn't
lend itself well as a jack up point so we had some Hi-Lift jack sockets welded to the corners. This effectively squares off the rear cross member and resembles that of a military Land Rover.
 
   
 

Land Rover "Hercules"

 

Specifications:

Reasons:
48" Hi-Lift jack: Easy to use - and fast to operate. This jack is useful for
more than just changing a flat. It can actually be used to lever a stuck vehicle over an obstacle or turn the Rover around (little by little).
 
Tow Hooks: To recover a stuck vehicle you need a strong anchor point to pull from. We installed D-rings and tow hooks for this purpose
 
Hi-Lift Jack Sockets: The rear cross member (bumper) of a Land Rover doesn't
lend itself well as a jack up point so we had some Hi-Lift jack sockets welded to the corners. This effectively squares off the rear cross member and resembles that of a military Land Rover.
 
Tow Strap and Winch Accessories: This 3 inch tow strap is 50 feet long and strong enough to pull the Land Rover out of harms way. Simply fold it in half to double the pulling power. Snatch blocks and rigging tackle aid vehicle recovery as well.
 
Jumper Cables: Our dual battery setup hasn't undergone much testing so we're including a set of jumper cables just in case.
