Shrink the pic down in Paint. You want kb's. Or do photobucket.

Have you seen the Max Coupler hitch?

Yeah but that one assumes you have a welder capable of making some decent penetrating welds. I have a cheap HF $80.00 flux core welder.
I have the materials list and blue prints for that one but decided against it because of lack of correct tools i.e. a decent mig welder. But I could slap one together in a few hours if I had the welder.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Here is mine when I first got it. the first photo lifted from the C/L ad.
The 2nd was about a week after I got it. I had just finished replacing the 67 y/o hitch.
