I recently won this at a wheeling event, but I am good on recovery gear. This brand new rope is very similar to the below Bubba Rope that retails for $289 plus shipping. It is 1" to 1 1/4" x 20' and I will sell for $111 shipped.
A snatch recovery rope stretches to I believe around 30% to evenly distribute high loading during recoveries. Its ability to stretch means that the force more gradually increases during the pull instead of a snap or yank from a traditional strap. Unfortunately to experience the most benefit you do not want to have an overly heavy-duty rope. For an FJ this seems to be a bit overkill.
Also because of its ability to stretch a snatch rope should only be used for recovery and not towing because the internal friction in the rope from prolonged usage can lead to failure.

Somewhat related.. I just bought the Bubba (not the Big) and that should be enough for recovery of other vehicles. Like someone above said, I think the Big Bubba might be overkill for recovering light trucks like the FJ -- at least from what I've read about this type of tool. Here's a video about the Bubba Rope products..
