A Hi-Lift base comes in handy as well.
Both of these things would be handy but I ordered (and paid) for both from your company last May and I still haven't seen them ... (its almost November now)

Wabfab seems to have issues with delivering pre-paid goods:

I am always curious as to why no one uses "snatch blocks"? Essentially a pulley you run your winch cable through at the anchor point and back to your vehicle.

This dramatically reduces the power needed to pull you out or doubles the pulling power you have to extricate yourself or someone else and spreads the load over two or more lines rather than all the force on one cable.

Maybe only on larger vehicles? I used it in the Marines all the time on tanks, so 50-68 tons but haven't seen anyone really mention using it for offroading. too much hassle running twice the cable if you have a powerful enough winch I guess?

I have a Big ass ARB snatch block, with like a working load of 20k lbs.......and a tree saver, plus a bunch of d-rings and straps as standard recovery equipment.......but I can't remember if I've ever had to actually use it!
But, it's better to have it, and be prepared than to not!!!

Most of the time the winch has enough power to extract these mid size vehicles. We have used snatch blocks quite a few times for recoveries, but mostly to change the angle from the winching vehicle to an anchor point to the recovered vehicle.

The other thing is that a snatch blocks slows down the winch speed by 2x as well when you double back to yourself, so unless you really need the pulling power not very much used.

Most lines are over 12k lbs and winches 9k lbs or better. So on vehicles weighing less than 6k lbs loaded not a huge requirement.
