That size strap sounds about right for pulling a F350 out. You can brake anything if you pull hard enough. For most stuck in the ditch or a bit of mud stuff it will do fine. Now go past the axle in deep mud with suction from water and I would worry more about what I am hooking too than the strap. I have a hitch on both front and back of the truck. I picked up a big hook that fits in the hitch which is great for hooking straps. I agree a clevis to frame is best but not so easy on some trucks/cars. I carry a big strap and short heavy chain so I can hook into frames easy. If I worry about any failure of strap I put coat or blanket over strap. Get EVERYBODY clear of cable, chain or strap on both sides, I have broken all of them in the past. Bottom line is that strap is fine, how will you hook it to front and back of your truck and what you are pulling or is pulling you???
