|techflork||get a winch cover!! It doesn't do an amazing job of keeping it from rusting but I definitely think it helps! Also I did the solenoid mod, I moved it under the hood. My wires were up against the grill, it took the paint right off after a few days! With it under the hood, it looks cleaner and I have some in-cab controls. BTW if your doing in-cab controls don't cheap out and buy those crappy auto-zone switches. They're a joke, just buy the OEM switches online. They're expensive but it'll look cleaner and work better.|

Do you need a winch plate if your bumper is set up for a winch,like an XRC bumper?

Got one that I use when I have my pups in the Jeep, I'll start keeping it in there all the time.

I'll check it out, was going to go with one from Quadratec but I'll check the UCF one out.

A couple ideas: winch cover, and a few extra shackles. You really can't have too many. Snatch strap would be nice but not necessary as far as recovery gear goes, just be careful with the recovery strap.
A nice new aftermarket bumper goes great with a new winch too.

So my wife picked me up a Warn VR8000 I will be mounting it in the next week and wanted some opinions of what necessary accessories I need to carry for recovery.
I am thinking a tree saver(2x8), snatch block(20,000 lb), recovery strap(2x30), d-rings and gloves.
Am I missing anything? Should I replace the tow hooks on the OEM bumper with something else for recovery?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
