All Recovery Points Are Not Created Equal #FWOTY19
Getting stuck comes with the territory when you go off-road. And even if you aren’t the one stuck, there is a lot of trail karma to be gained by helping someone else who needs a tug. You never want to wrap a strap around suspension or axle components though, for fear of damaging them. Recovery points that tie into the frame are the safest way to recover a vehicle, but not every rig has them. You might have to get creative when pulling a commuter car out of a snowy ditch, but fortunately all of our 2019 SUV of the Year and Pickup Truck of the Year entries had legit recovery points on them.
