The Warn M8000 has been enough so far.
Though not really part of the build thread, since you asked:
I am a 43 year old business owner.
When I was 24, I was a newlywed, and my wife and I were starting our Senior years in college, driving a 1980 Honda Civic that had body damage on 3 of 4 sides. My wife drove a red Ford Fiesta with a yellow door. We watched the Gulf War on a 13" black and white TV, and lived on student loans, Pell Grants, scholarships, my part time job delivering pizza and her part time job in a cheese factory.
By the time I was 28, we had a son, each had finished masters degrees, $45k in student loans, no assets, and had upgraded to a 100k miles Chevy S10 in need of a clutch and a Honda Civic Wagon.
Just keep at it, work really hard, and keep your eyes open for opportunities to be a business owner.
My entrepreneurial peers spend money on big homes, cabins, boats, RVs, etc.
We don't. Our only real toys/recreation expenditure is our family jeep obsession.
