Maybe somebody can explain how that would be of any use to change a flat, lifting the wheel with the flat - then what?

That attachment is not for changing a flat. Its for digging yourself out of holes.

High lift's are generally not for tire changes.

Get a real shovel

I would add a collapsible shovel to your list. Get one with a serrated edge. You can cut tree limbs and make your own traction mats with branches (for mud or snow)
I'm with you on the hi-lift, although now that I know of its use as a winch, well, that could be useful.

And find room for a full length shovel. It really makes the digging easier.

Finally, don't forget to crack open a road soda and check out the surrounding area. You might find some place really interesting, stopping where you wouldn't normally.

Good stuff here. I was just putzing around some old logging roads near me, had no recovery gear at all. About 30 minutes into the woods I realized I might be making a mistake, especially seeing as how it's Bigfoot territory.

Do not use a shackle to connect two straps. The shackle can become a deadly projectile. Use a piece of wood like this.

I wish I could buy 4runner trail, but I was wondering if I could buy other wheels and tires for off road? Please share your experience with me. Thanks
Your post was a long time ago and not sure anyone answered. Most 4Runners come new with Passenger-rated tires. And, yes, you can turn that Limited into a pretty doggone functional offroad vehicle with the addition of better tires (and perhaps a lift). It's actually pretty capable right out of the box!

Good luck and good trucking.

Recovery Anchor

I have not used this yet but hope to demo it the next time I have it on hand and go camping. There are very information videios on their Facebook as well as on their kickstarter website:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...f-road-recover

https://www.facebook.com/DeadmanLLC/
You can use this product just about anywhere in hopefully and sort of senario. I've backed them on a pledge because I feel like this would be a great product to use if you are solo or with others but need to anchor off just about anything around you. I hope that somebody finds this helpful/useful and can get in on this what seems to be a great product.

Bilstein shocks with OME coils seem like the most popular here

Great information in this thread. I am likely to do some sand driving this fall. Will put some of this to use. Thanks!
