Recovery to what level? Just slide off road into a ditch and needs pulled out? Or rolled over while rock crawling? Recovery hooks might have been an available option for the front bumper area. They usually bolt to the frame and come out through the bumper openings. You don't mention 2wd or 4x4. If a 4x4, you may look into a cable winch setup for the front, but that usually requires allot of other items.
Wouldn't bother with the stock stuff. It's garbage and borderline usable.
I'd go to harbor freight and buy a 1/2" breaker bar, a 22mm socket, and depending where you'd like to keep it, a bottle jack or floor jack. Floor jack is better imo but will take up more room. Bottle jack will be far more compact.
I keep a few peices of wood in the truck as well to use as a base for the jack if need be.
Flat tire repair kit and some plugs. Air compressor and bottle of fix-a-flat (I never used it myself in 20 years, always gave them away to people in need).
Since we ran LT tires, there was no need for spare tires or jacks, the few leaks we got were slow enough to deal with later and in a pinch the plugs would handle.
Since one truck is back on P-Metrics, it has all of its stock gear in good shape for a tire change plus a Gorilla collapsible breaker bar with a double sided socket instead of that giant crossbar I used to lug around. Anyone can have the two in my garage, we just don't use them anymore.
I equip each truck with a Maglite with 3 D-cell batteries and a full size leatherman multi-tool. They fit in the door of my 900s perfectly. On top of the flashlight is a can of bug spray, the 40% kind to keep from getting eaten by skeeters.
