Front hidden hitch for rubicon

Hi all anyone running the hidden hitch front receiver hitch on a 13 rubicon or any rubicon. I like the idea of this and the versitility. I would like to know how it fits I don't want to order one and it not fit around the electronic sway bar disco. I would also like to know opinions on how you like it

I have a front receiver on a '13 Rubi, the dealer charged me $330 or thereabouts to remove it from a 12 and install it on a 13 along with moving front and rear winch wiring from the '12 to the '13. I don't think it's that bad. I can't remember which brand receiver I have though, somehow I'm thinking it was Curt?

Convenient setup if you want to leave the winch at home most of the time, terrible for approach angle. I really only use it during hunting season for moving trees and if we ever got snowed in. For real wheeling, I'd get a permanent winch mount.

of course, maybe you just want it to carry a bike rack or somethin'!

Ok the hidden hitch requires trimming the front bumper so I didn't think it would hurt the approach angle and I only plan or getting the winch out when needed so I would have it on there all day

Oh, I don't think the receiver itself hurts the approach angle much, I just mean when you put the winch on there it is pretty bad.
