    I would snatch using the recovery eyes, both front and rear. But snatching doesn't mean you need to floor it and stretch the strap to its max. Be sensible and give it a little tug first, then a bit harder if required. More often than not a little tug is all that is needed to get someone out.

    Some cars have 2 recovery points at the front or rear, in which case you'd use an equaliser strap to lessen the impact on the chassis.

    Do you actually need to "snatch" pull. The (very) few times I've helped someone who's been stuck (last time was a camper van stuck in mud) I just eased forward until the strap was taut, then eased the throttle (in low range) so it was a continuous gentle pull. Did the job OK.

    No you don't have to. If it works like you mentioned then that's perfect. Which is why I said you start with a little tug and only go a little harder next time if needed. As long as the car is not up to the chassis in mud you can probably "slide" it out by just pulling (as you did). Though if it is stuck to the chassis you'll find the mud sucks the car down and it would be winch time as snatching would probably not help at all.
