which winch for an OR-Fab bumper?

I finally got my OR-Fab front winch bumper installed on my XJ, and now I need to get a winch to go in it. However, it looks like I may be space-restricted due to the design of the winch area (slanted for approach angle).

Those of you with the OR-Fab on your XJs, what winch did you get? How well does it fit? How hard was it to get attached? (Pics would be good, but I dunno if I can ask for that in a tech thread?)

I would think most winches would fit in that space but I would call the bumper company and see if they have any recommendations,with my arb the only winch that is supposed to be used was a warn because of the hole placement for the free wheel handle,but with a hole saw my smitty built fit nice.The different was the warns handle was on the left and the smutty built is on the right.but every thing else fit right in.

ah,beer the cause of and cure to all of lifes problems ...Homer J Simpson... I am the guy in the red jeep!
