Bumper and winch

I'm new to jeeps but I have a '93 YJ, any bumper and winch set up y'all recommend? I'll get it after some general maintenance but just looking for ideas and where to buy from!

Hardcore jeepers who use their winches regularly will tell you to go Warn. I agree with the quality of Warn, but since I don't use my winch much and managed for years with a high lift and snatch strap I chose cheaper. Some say Harbor Frieght 12000 lb is fine for the occasional user, I chose the Quadratec 9500 with synthetic line since I hate dealing with the metal cable and feel the synthetic is safer to use.
As far a bumper there are lots if choices. I have the short ProComp bumper and a standard winch mount. They say the standard winch mount only works with the stock bumper, but with a little fabrication I got it to work with my Procomp and I think it looks a lot better.

Yeah I was looking at a quadratec 9500, I won't use it too much so I don't want to spend too much! Thanks! There's another bumper, the QR3? That's the one I'm looking at but I don't know anything about it
