Winch cover or not???????

Quick question...I just put my new winch on last week. I remember seeing a thread on here some time back about whether or not to use the winch cover, but I can't remember what the general concensus was. Thoughts? I've heard convincing arguments on both sides. Confused.

Honor thy ground clearance lest the earth rise up and smite thee.

I coated mine with Teflon spray and oiled the cable to help repel water. I sometimes use a trash bag over it if it's parked and raining hard. If you use a cover, take it off after it rains to prevent moisture from building under it. Other than that there is nothing wrong with using one.

I use one especially during the summer since my jeep lives outside just to keep the sun from baking it all day long.
