Mile Marker Snatch Block
Sometimes a winch simply can't pull your truck out of a mess because only a small portion of the cable is extended which in turn reduces its pulling power. In order to overcome these situations, Mile Marker designed a snatch block to double your pulling power when winching your rig out of any situation. Any off-road enthusiast would be thrilled to find this stuffed in their stocking.
What it does: Can change the direction you pull in as well as double or even triple your pulling power when used properly
Benefits: Has a 24,000-pound rating and features a grease fitting that provides less friction on the pulley rotation.

Warn Tree Trunk Protector Strap
Getting stuck is just part of the off-road experience but that doesn't mean you need to make a mess of the environment trying to get yourself out. It's never okay to loop the winch cable around the trunk of a tree; doing this will destroy the outer layer of bark, which delivers minerals to nourish the entire tree. Warn designed this 4-inch-by-8-foot, tree-trunk-protector strap to prevent the kind of damage a choker chain or wire rope might cause. The strap is constructed of tough, high-quality nylon web encasing red warning marker to indicate damaged webbing so you know when it's time to get another tree trunk protector and to top it all off the end loops are reinforced with abrasion-resistant wear pads.
What it does: Protects trees from being damaged during vehicle recovery
Benefits: Gives you a secure anchor point that is rated at 30,000 pounds of breaking strength while keeping environmentalists off our backs.
