How to Get Your Off-Road Rig Unstuck: Trail Tips and Recovery Tools You Need
Any self-respecting car enthusiast will do some kind of preparation before they leave for a trip, but the level of preparation and equipment you carry changes quite a bit when venturing off of the pavement. With a normal road trip, help is just a phone call away should things go awry. But off-roading usually involves going to remote places where cell service is slim and people that could lend a helping hand are few and far between. Off-roading requires a great deal of self-reliance, and part of that is carrying some extra equipment in case you have to get yourself out of a tight spot. Just as important as having the equipment is knowing how to use it, so let’s take a closer look at some of the gear you should carry on your backcountry adventures along with some of the ways this gear is used for vehicle recovery.
We’re assuming you’re already packing some basic hand tools and maybe even some spare parts in the event of a breakdown. Most off-roaders also equip their vehicle with a winch because let’s face it, getting stuck is just a fact of off-roading life. But a winch doesn’t do a whole lot of good without some other gear on-hand. Straps and clevises for hooking to anchor points are essential, as is knowledge of basic winch rigging techniques. Anvil Off-Road is a great source for outfitting your vehicle with everything from winches to rigging equipment to straps and fuel cans and a whole lot more. We’re going to take a look at some of the high-quality gear that’s available from Anvil and also show you some of the ways this gear can be used to get yourself or someone else out of a sticky situation.

Father/Son-Built Turbocharged Plymouth Gold Duster With Original Paint!By: Holley | 01/19/2021
Jody Babcock’s 1972 Plymouth Gold Duster started life as a 6-cylinder car and came to him with original paint and only 22,000 miles on the odometer. A fabricator by trade, Babcock wanted to impart some of those skills to his son, and the two transformed the car from stock to turbocharged drag-strip terror.
