Front receiver hitch for XJ?

Who makes a good front receiver hitch set-up for XJs? ... Somthing that will let me retain my stock front bumper and tow hooks?? (Would like it to be 2inch/class III). Any pics online-- I couldnít find any of an XJ?

I like the Class III hidden hitch for the *rear* of the XJÖbut canít find anything like that for the front.

(WHY? b/c I donít want to do front and rear replacement bumpers and I plan to make a removable winch set-up that will fit into any hitch 2inch receiver.)

If it looks kinda ghetto when installed then that kinda defeats the purpose...

I like it. I might pick it and stick it after I get the rear done.

Mine is a Drawtite. I've also trimmed off the lower part of my front bumper, but if I'd left it stock you would only have seen the 2" receiver sticking through a hole that had to be cut in the center air dam.

I used a Draw-Tite on mine and it sits right under the bumper Draw-Tite hitch on etrailer.com

You should still be able to use your tow hooks since they mount on the outside of the frame.
