Hello all - I was the lucky recipient of a Hi-Lift jack recently. I need it for a few projects but then I'll likely keep it with my older 4Runner. I have one of those gadgets for lifting the wheel directly but I'm also looking at getting either a chain or a tow strap in case I ever need to use it as a winch. Any advice on which to get? From what I can see a polyester tow strap (with limited stretch) is cheaper than the equivalent length of chain. Is there any reason to go with chain?
I'm a pretty careful driver and I've never gotten stuck before so whatever I end up with won't see much use. (Hopefully!)
