A good 2" strap is generally rated at 20,000 pounds. Yes, a full size rig pulling a jeep is possible to over load the strap but only if the pulling rig was hitting it too hard or the stuck vehicle is really mired down. Use a 2" strap for light tugs & you won't have a problem.

Thats the problem though... people carry a 2" strap then take it balls to the wall and snap it.

I was at the mounds and watched them break 4 - 2" straps in a row doing this with a mild stuck. Too many people assume you have to really yank ANY strap

Bullfrog came in with a 6" strap and slow and easy yanked him out.
