#1 Front u-joint and axles-
Usually can limp off the trail and the axle shafts need to come out. Jack out, are you on 35's and your factory jack won't reach?  Should have a Hi Lift.  secure vehicle, lift Jeep, For a TJ remove wheel (4 prong? lock socket?), remove caliper, remove rotor, remove hub bolts (13mm 12 point wrench), remove axle, remove axle. You get the idea.  Are you prepared?  Helpful video at the bottom.

#2 Driveshaft Failure -
Secure the vehicle and climb under.  Depending on your vehicle (TJ w/ slip yoke eliminator kit, Rubi, or JK) and what exactly happened, you'll have 4 small nuts to remove from ujoint ubolts or about 10 bolts on a JK at the rear axle, and then depending on your setup the same at the transfer case end.  Small wrenches come in handy here as does a ratchet wrench.  You need small tools too. Video at the bottom.

#3 Ring Gear Failure-
Teeth gone, maybe just the spider gears.  If it will roll, get it off the trail to a level working area.  If it drives OK, and its not a trailer queen, you may want to try and limp home.  If it is popping and binding, you need to trailer it or take action.  In the front, you can unlock hubs if equipped, or remove shafts, and if it's the rear it gets complicated. You'll want to trailer it but if you must, depending on the break, you can pull axles and remove spider gears or ring gear in the rear and over fill the housing with gear oil to insure gear oil to the outer bearings.  If it's a D35 and you broke a rear axle shaft, the wheel will move outward so you'll know it's broken and you'll need a shaft

-Tree Saver
-Snatch Block
-D-Ring

This is the basic recovery kit.  Good list David.

I would add D RingS...plural. More than one.

And...always check to make sure your winch controller is in working order AND in your bag.  It has been known to be left behind.
