      This is the place that I use. They have some great sets.

      I originally used the straps that have a built in axle strap. Seems like a great idea, but the axle part takes a beating, and if starts to fray, the whole strap is shot. Its not a bad idea to get a couple extra axle straps, as they somehow have a way of wandering off.

          This is a good set up kit starting at $89 for 4 straps

          I upgrade the hooks to swivel snap hooks - makes life so much easier
          also order the correct length strap for your trailer
          I would always recommend at least a snap hook so it will not come off the d ring or axle strap
          if the jeep ever moved or compressed suspension and slacked

            Ryan - if you can cancel those, I certainly would. Those hooks will work, but not very well. Dave's link is much better, just make sure to get them long enough - the default is only 8 feet

              if you want to borrow my straps I could bring them to the Tues Meeting, that gives you time to sort out something and not rush. I'm not using them anytime soon

                On another note, when I worked for towing company we used to put an extra strap as a safety when loading a rollback(flatbed). It wasn't tensioned, just clipped with the slack out of it...cheap insurance. On a trailer without the headache rack to stop forward motion, two safety straps, or a single strap fastened fore and aft of front axle would be better... just a thought

                  Thanks for the offer on the straps, but mine will be here today. I'll give them a try and see how I like them I figure.
