Best Trailor Hitch for TJ???

I need some opinions as Christmas is coming quick. In your opinion what is the best hitch for a 97' TJ? I want something that is both hidden really well and a class II or III. Those are my only requirements.
Are these any good?

If you offroad, you should definitely avoid trailer hitches that bolt on underneath the rear bumper since they will drag excessively. Better is a replacement bumper with an integrated receiver hitch like perhaps the Olympic Rock bumper where the hitch doesn't hang below.

I used a Hidden hitch from JCW on the front, it was nice for a winch mount, 'til I made a bumper.
I've got the hiddinHitch from JCW on the rear and I like it, it mounts to the frame. I think I'll build a bumper around it sometime. I often slam it, bash it, beat rocks with it, and it takes a beating, it also slides well.
It has saved my gas tank and the 3/16 armor on the tank. I would say; to look at it, it hurts my departure angle, but I don't remember ever getting caught-up on it.
I might have pics, Y me for them.
