Hi Xalbador,

I would suggest you buy the Viking rope from the Almost4x4 Auto Service Centre. This rope has been tried and tested at the club without any problems.

This is a road cable to tow a car but it is not even allowed in UAE , so it is USELESS ... you need a rated snatch rope ( I would recomend 11 tone and above ) or as Iqsaan mentioned a Viking Rope ... the choice is yours

How about the rigging nylon ropes in Dragon mart? there are several high load ones that are quite long as well...
With a couple of shakles should be ok??

Just got an 8 metre 4 Ton one today... thoughts?

4T???....and you have a Dodge RAM!!!!! ... man you don't have a bicycle!!!! sorry but I undertood that you did not bother you to read the previous posts, for example #5 where 11T and above is recomended.....

Guys you have to keep in mind that off road is not an easy game and can be dangerous, if you don't have the right tools it can be a nightmare.
You have also to fix in your mind that if we do recommend certain tools with certain characteristics is not for fun, is for your safety and for the safety of people around you.
Don't turn around me with your 4T "rope" pls

Hi Iqsaan,

Just went through this thread today and was interested to know Almost4x4 has its own center!

Could you please help me with directions to the location of the Almost4x4 Auto Service Center.


Thanks in advance,

*edit*

after a bit of research on the forum found the contact details to the shop and Omar, so will get in touch directly....thanks!
