    Re: Deep Cycle Battery as Cranking Battery

    Normally the crank amps are given for a specific battery, if high enough it will start your vehicle. But a true deep cycle will probably not, but the semi deep cycles may.

    Re: Recovery points on towbar

    My concern is that you will snatch not directly on the chassis, but on the towbar. But also depends how much force you will use. For a light jerk it will be fine, but not for max force.
