In the event you get stuck, or need mechanical assistance to get over an obstacle, what gear do you carry on-board your Teryx while on a ride?
As you can see from my pics, my recovery gear has never been used. And honestly, I hope I don't ever need to use it. The reason we carry recovery gear is just precautionary. Since my wife and I are older, having emergency gear along on our rides could actually be the difference between a 'life & death' scenario!
The other reason is of course, to help other folks we might come across on a ride who may be in need of recovery.
Here is what I have assembled as 'recovery gear' that we carry along on our T2:
1] Winch W/50' cable, 5000lb.
2] Synthethic extension rope, 50' 7000lb.
3] Tree saver strap, 8' 4000lb (2).
4] Tow strap, 30' 8000lb.
5] 1/2" shackle (2)
6] 3/4" shackle (2)
7] Snatch block, 4000lb (2).
8] Leather gloves (forgot them in the pic).
O Boy, where I ride one need all of the above and below plus
compressor, first aid kit, ax, fire starter, emergency food and water, emergency blanket, canned tire inflator, folding shovel, chain saw plus gas and oil, assortment of tools, tie straps, Garmin GPS , Backroads map book, (redundant with Atlogis software and free Canada Topo maps on Smartphone) tape, oil, funnel, some fuses, wire and tester, and so on. In our remote areas you are on your own if things get sour. I got hung up in spring solidly on rock and spend hours getting off with only a handsaw/machete on hand, from now on chain saw goes with me. Never mind I also carry shot gun or 22 depending where I am going, I got attacked by a black bear 5 years ago on my ATV 50 miles from major road. I learned my lesson to respect our remote woods, but then it's gods country (mostly) so add mosquito netting, spray , rain-gear and more. Want me to carry on with stuff I forgot ? LOL added: head light, hunting knife, water filter, Leatherman multi tool, towels , outhouse paper, and don't forget to let somebody now where you are going...........
Bad Mojo recommends Jump starter that's for sure required, I carry a NOCO 40 with USB outlet and USB cables in case my dashboard outlets die, there is also a small collapsible fishing rod and some lures on board all the time. BTW i use waterproof, labeled, plastic ammunition boxes to store the gear that fits. they are cheap, dust and waterproof and fit neatly in the storage boxes behind the seats. In spring there will be also a spare tire and lug wrench as upgrade to 14 inch rims and 27" Blackwater evolutions because of 8ply ... Now what did I forget?
