This is what I am using, as well. In the camping section at Wal-Mart, I was able to find a set of 2 ratchet straps for just under $10. The straps have a 1500 lb breaking point.
I had to go through and cut out the stitching so that I could remove the hooks, then re-sewed it by hand. It's pretty easy to stick a needle through, so it didn't take too long.
I figure that I can't beat the $10 price tag, especially since it's for two 15' straps. I have to keep remembering that they're in the sporting goods section, not in the automotive section, though.
