Need some help regarding a few parts asap please (Winch, Bumper, Diff covers)

I just got a Jk not to long ago and have added:
2 door 6 speed
3 inch lift
ace rock sliders.

I want to start to add protection for the trails and want a light weight bumper than is still strong enough to winch on.

Winches I'm looking at warn or smittybilt. 9-10k lbs.

I also want differtiinal cover that offers the best protection. I'm split between Rancho and ARB

Help please

Tube style bumpers will be more light weight than a plate steal design, and should be strong enough to winch from. As far as the winch I have both kind of. I have the warn 9.5i on my jk and it has never let me down in a pinch, but i have the XRC8 on my TJ and it too has never let me down. Its going to be about how much you are wanting to spend the warn was about 3 times the cost of XRC. Cheers

Here is what I did for a winch. I did it the cheapest way I could with maximizing the amount of pull. Eventually I may spring for a bumper but for now I think I got it covered.
