Since we knew we'd be coming close to rolling, we used a tree strap around the crossmember and secured it to a winch line. Whenever a bystander attempts to brace a vehicle from rolling, he or she should never grab onto the vehicle or rollbar. If you must counter the vehicle weight, tie on at least a 6-foot strap and stand clear of the vehicle when doing so. Never tie the strap to your body and always let go of it if the force becomes great enough to pull you forward.
