We know that you would never get stuck, but it's good to have the gear for your......"friend." Having the right gear, at the right moment is always a good feeling. At Black Bear we suggest having a good air supply for airing up after the trail, or in case of a flat. It is also a great idea to have a good winch with the correct pulling power for your vehicle. We also recommend that you have a tree saver, snatch block, d-rings, and kinetic rope handy, for when things get a little sideways. Lastly, for when things get down right nasty, a shovel or hi-lift jack maybe just the piece of equipment you need to get you out. Be safe out there, and try and keep the shiny side up and the greasy side down.
