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.
