I just got my warn heavy-duty winching accessory kit from Warn yesterday instead of the white/grey glove i got the new black ones :thumb: . They had a mail in rebate with purchase of warn winch :thumb:

just need to get a winch damper and recovery strap.

time to practice with the items to familiarize myself with them.

Save some money on winch damper and use a towel, coat, floor mat, etc.

Moving blankets work well also. It serves as a multi use item winch damper also lay on why doing trail fixes. It is especially good while laying on your back in the winter fixing your jeep. And the best part is they are cheap! That's my two cents.

Thanks guys for the tip on alternatives to a winch damper. [emoji106]

I am looking to refresh my recovery gear and ARB has always been a top provider, but how do they stack up to some alternatives like Mac's or Bubba? I am always in the hunt for shaving weight and have seen some aluminum snatch blocks and soft shackles on the market.

Unless you've got money burning a hole in your wallet, I don't know why you'd want to refresh what you have especially being that you trust ARB to be a "top provider" of recovery gear.

I don't have ARB now. It's old hodgepodge of gear that is pushing 10 years old with numerous pulls on them. If ARB is still tops, then that's great, because it's what I had my eyes on.

Oh, okay. Mac's and Bubba both make quality gear. I've been using ARB for the last 20 years and they're still getting the job done well for me.

I would like to suggest taking the time to get familiar with what's in your kit and how to use it. This last weekend we were in the snow with one stock unlimited stuck, another member hooked a strap on to pull him out, some members had him tighten up the slack before pulling, all he did is get himself stuck. I backed up pulled the first jeep, they tried to have me pull up the slack, I knew better, left a bit of slack had him start going then gave a small tug and out he came. I'm going to make a point to make sure the club practice's a bit next time out.


Don't let fear and common sense hold you back:)

I agree with getting familiar with your equipment. My wife laughs when I buy a new toy and play with it in the driveway until we get out in the middle of nowhere and shit goes down.
