Must have winch accessories?

I'm getting a XD9000i winch tomorrow. What else do I need to get to make it functional(it comes with a winch plate)? What do I need as far as the charging system?

Also my Jeep has a 2.5" RC lift and already sits 3/4" lower in the front than the rear. How much spring spacer you think I'll need to get it to sit level after the winch install?

Wait until after your install... then you will know! Your charging system should be fine!

If you still have a regular battery you will want to get a deep cycle. You can use a marine deep cycle, same thing as an optima yellow top, but half the price.

Other then that, gloves and a tree saver minimum.

I recommend a hand throttle control. It helps ALOT imo. If not and you have to do some heavy winching you will have to sit in the front seat and apply some throttle manually which sucks especially when you're by yourself and you have to be outside the jeep.

Also just like the poster before me, gloves are absolutely necessary and I always have a flashlight too just in case you get caught out at night.

RE1000 - HAND THROTTLE - Rubicon Express

As far as what to do about the rake, I don't have a lift but I have a 1.75 spacer on the front of mine and it sits slightly unlevel so you might think about trying a RC 4 inch coil for the front, I bet that would get you level.
