The other issue with the aftermarket ones is how low they are. I found images of older ones and they hung below the plane of the frame itself, absolutely wrecking the approach angle. The one we made is level with the frame, and in retrospect, it's still too low. I have a winch wired up with quick connects on a removable winch cradle that sits in the hitch receiver, and I have had to scrap dirt out of the fairleads a couple of times because of the approach angle.

If I could do it all over again, I would save up my dollars and buy a custom bumper that has a hitch receiver higher up, built into the bumper itself.
