Anytime you're preparing for an adventure in your Ford Bronco, recovery gear is generally going to be at the top of your checklist of necessities you'll want to bring along. That means a kinetic energy rope will be one of the items needed for your journey. Rugged Ridge has you covered by offering this 7/8" diameter nylon rope that is 30' in length and features a breaking strength of 30,000 lb and a working load limit (WLL) of 7,500 lb! Sometimes a recovery is going to be best executed when having the option to use a kinetic energy transfer to gently yank the stuck vehicle free, vs using a polyester tow strap, which is only meant for towing operations and not recovering downed vehicles.
Just because the stuck vehicle on the trail is a Jeep, doesn't mean you have to leave them stranded! Lasso up, and pull'em out with the Rugged Ridge Kinetic Recovery Rope! Rugged Ridge covers this product with a limited 5 year warranty and we cover standard shipping costs, as our way of saying thanks!
Always use the appropriate rated recovery gear for your vehicle! It is paramount to carefully plan out every step before engaging in every recovery operation and exercise safety precautions. No two recoveries are alike, and each operation requires careful planning so you can perform a safe recovery. If you are unsure of what capacity you need or would help selecting a pre-assembled recovery kit or building one just for you, please give our team a call or chat with us online and we will be happy to help!
Always exercise extreme caution during any recovery operation. Check and double check all of your recovery gear before each use and again after use, to look for any damage to your Rugged Ridge Kinetic Recovery Rope. It is extremely important to never use a damaged rope! Once your gear is inspected, read on for information on how to properly connect the Recovery Rope to your intended recovery points and attempt a safe and successful recovery.
To begin, wear winching or mechanic gloves to protect your hands and always use the correct sized kinetic recovery rope for the job. Then, prepare for recovery by hooking your kinetic tow rope to low points on the vehicle in need of recovery and the vehicle doing the recovering. Always begin attempting recovery with a kinetic rope by pulling the rope snug. This is referred to as a static pull. Slowly accelerate to see if the stuck vehicle will start moving. If that doesn’t get the job done, try backing toward the stuck vehicle by 3-4 feet and slowly drive forward at no more than 10 mph with a running start, until your vehicle begins to slow, letting tension in the rope draw tight. Next, let off the gas, hold the brakes, and let the built-up kinetic energy transfer to the disabled vehicle to see if it moves. If the stuck vehicle still isn't budging, try backing up a little closer still, and again attempt recovery beginning with a slow running start. Be sure never to attempt a recovery with the rope at an angle to avoid injury and possibly tipping over the stuck vehicle. If this fails, you may need to try recovering with a second vehicle by pulling in tandem with a larger rope.
