when you are pulling, are you pulling from the front and going backwards? Or are you pulling from the back and going forward??
pulled from front this time.. pulled from back last time.. last time was a combo of things.. spider gear exploded due to one wheel spinning very fastly and diff was low on fluid.. then the force when i went to yank XJmichigan out blew it out..

Today i just lightly gave it the juice in 4 lo and the upper mount snapped off.. Not to bad to fix. just make a different style mount from better metal that bolts to the case where it splits instead of casted into the case..

Yea, if you think about it, as he backs up it also winds the slack out of the strap real fast and then helps pull the vehicle so you get double the pulling power. You know, like gear reduction.
sometimes ill jack the truck up with the HI lift and just winch em out using that method

the best way to not break while tugging someone out is to just hold the strap out the window with ur left arm and back up really fast till u lose the slack and just floor it.

If you are breaking that much crap pulling people you, you need to stop, step back, and learn the proper way to do recovery.

IE with a snatch strap DO NOT back up damn near to the stuck vehicle and then pedal down to try to pull them out, that is guaranteed breakage. If you cannot get it with some hard tugs, either start daisy chaining rigs, or winch, or start digging.

Thats a safety thing, if you stop on the backside no one on the front side can see your flag, so you continue down the hill. You can stop and unhook earlier if you have a spotter at the top though.
