Default What to buy at 4Wheelparts?

So I got my $25 gift card in the mail from the Blue Ribbon/TLCA deal, right? https://www.sharetrails.org/secure/tlca/

Now I have a gift card and need to figure out what to use it on...

-I don't need tires. Don't need a winch, or a hi lift jack. Don't need any more lights.. already got straps. I guess I could get some more shackles? Or maybe a second snatch block..


What did the rest of y'all who got the gift card run out and get? Give me the ~$50 or less item that when I see it on the trail I'm going to say "oh man, that is so cool where'd you get that?"

Don't waste your money on shackles there, too expensive. Find the closest Big R ranch supply store. They sell the large forged shackles for $10.

How about one of these? Hi-lift condom



The odd thing is that I actually saw these advertised in their mag (ORA) but I don't think they sell them

Got two for Christmas. Haven't actually tried them and I bet they might disappear if you left them on...I don't carry my hi-lift around with me at all times though unless I'm going on a run or long distance away from home so I'm not too worried about it....

A bit over $50, but you need an off road kit for that hi-lift jack.

Seems like a high-lift rebuild kit would be a good item - but so far, spraying the highlift with WD-40 fixes it every time.
