My concern with straps on the same corner, is the idea of the jeep walking side to side at all, again, would depend on the angle of the straps and the amount of walk would prolly be very minimal.
In all reality. If you got 4 straps on you vehicle that are hooked correctly to the axles, I think you're going to be pretty okay.
i used to ALWAYS go criss cross cause its the way i always watched my dad do it.. we had to haul a rolling jeep chassis one time with 3 straps.. and we hooked it all up criss cross not knowing any better and just left one off.. by the time we got to the destination about 5 miles away going only 45 mph the front of the chassis was about to come off..
