Going on an off-road expedition? One lesson you need to learn before even leaving your house: never underestimate the remote areas or venture without some basic equipment on board your vehicle.
Minimum recovery / Safety Equipment:
Recovery Straps - flat with sewn loops and no hooks. Straps with hooks can be very dangerous, because of the metal hooks.

Large, lightweight shovel. A number one equipment for off-road enthusiasts. It will help you to extract your vehicle when you are stuck.
Hi-Lift Black Cast and Steel Jack.
It will allow you to lift your vehicle in deeper sand or lift from the car's wheel instead of a bumper or frame section.

This list is not comprehensive. The equipment's list should always be an indication of your own experience, self-confidence and resourcefulness to know what, and what not, to take, depending on the lenght, remoteness and severity of the route you decide to undertake.
