Was reading quite a few posts now but can't find any compact answers for this Topic.

So I am hoping for some experienced JL owners when it comes to purchase the equipment that is right for your car. The Market is damn big and as a newbie sometimes overwelming as well.

I am driving a STOCK 2018 JL Sahara 4 door and want to get a good recovery gear in case I have to use it. For now I am just looking for the base equipment (Towing, Snatch, Shackles, Gloves...) cause stuff is expensive:whew:.
Looking for same good answers and conversations.

Add:

What size/capacity shackle suits the Jeep Wrangler (workload)?
Is the width and lenght of the Straps important?
How strong should the Towing/Snatch step be?
Where are the proper recovery points for the Wrangler?
Do I have to mount them if no hitch receiver is installed?
Bow Shackle or Soft Shackle?
