tow bar brackets for 97 Grand Cherokee

Hello,
I was thinking of making some tow bar brackets for my wife's 97 Grand Cherokee. I took off the plastic bumper cover to take a look at the actual metal bumper. I'm not sure if that thing looks strong enough to tow from.
Does anyone have some aftermarket ones that they could describe to me? Where exactly do they mount?

Thanks,
Philip

If I'm understanding the diagram, it looks like it attaches to both the bumper and the frame rail and the radiator support. Wow. I'm guessing that towhooks take more stress than towbar brackets because of the jerking and such.

Anyone have pictures of towbar brackets like the base plates from blue ox?

Thanks again!
