Depends on all the elements in the equation.... What vehicle weights are involved? Type of terrain?? etc.... Always best to be over-prepared but that all costs money. Sensibly a strong enough kinetic rope (4 ton+), a hi-lift jack and some 'waffle boards' and another pulling vehicle should get you out of most trouble.... if in wooded terrain and you're looking at getting a winch, you'll need one rated at least twice the weight of the vehicle.... 4-6 ton is basic first bought winch but some fit 9-12 ton and all fitted using a winch bumper fitted to the chassis and a tree strop to anchor to trees so not to damage them. The favourite rope is Dynema(sp!) synthetic rope, you could use standard steel cable, normally supplied on given winch but its a little heavy but fine for most straight forward recoveries. But before all of that, you'll need decent recovery points on your vehicle and the one doing the recovery. Without those its a recipe for disaster. Embarassed  
I hope this helps but I would get more advice or even training before attempting these suggestions, maybe another forum member will jump in here and add more advice!  Shocked

Thanks for the reply Smile i will be doing some trainng and reading somw books too. my idea is me and myfried. he drives a Landy, go out in a pair to somw sights. get stuck, recovery eachother/other people. my main thought is the Suzuki being to light to pull or winch the landy out.
