Flat towing YJ with after market bumper

I have a question for some of you that tow your YJ's behind a Motorhome...

What type / brand equipment do you buy for a modified or aftermarket front bumper?

I built a custom front bumper, but it isn't very much different from many aftermarket styles...
Most of the manufactures sell mounting kits for the specific models but most require using the original frame / bumper bolts to mount the thing.
The "D" rings on my bumper would interfere with the manufactures mounting recommendations, and I think most of them are ugly...

Has anyone bought a kit and modified it for an aftermarket bumper?...

I just bought a craigs list special, universal tow hitch. Made my own brackets bolted, then also welded them to my bumper. I use grade 8 bolts and lock nuts to attach the hitch when I need to tow it.
