Winch accessories

I'm going to get a Warn M8000 soon. Besides a snatch block and a tree saver is there anything else I MUST have? I won't need it for anything crazy just pulling myself out of the mud etc...

If the winch is an 8k what size snatch block should I get? I would guess atleast double the winch correct?

I would also get a tow strap 20-30 feet long and upgrade to synthetic rope on the winch.

Already have a nice 30' tow strap. Synthetic rope would be a good one!

I don't like synthetic line. Just me. It's a matter of personal preference.

How about a Jeep shackle? BTW Where do you buy stuff for your ride? I need some Jeep Accessories like mats and seat covers for my liberty, I'm looking for stores where I can score nice deals.
