Any good size Truck Stop will have them (T/A, Flying J, etc...) you

I've had mine for over a year. They are the 2 inch
wide, yellow straps- very heavy duty with good size
hooks. They were $29.87 each with no shipping charge.
Item number: TTD2YSH7S. I can't remember the name of
the company but the number is 1-800-762-3370 and this
is the actual manufacturer- no middleman.
