I made my own base plates for the wifes GC Jeep and my TJ Jeep. Took my about 4 hrs to make each set of base plates and 1hr to install.

I need to put some sort of baseplate/towplate on my 99 Cherokee also.  I tried local weld shops and they were not enthusiastic about it because of the thin gauge of the structure and the bumper in the way.  I found this tow plate (see link below).  You need to buy their frame brackets also, but it all comes to less than half of Blue Ox.  I did look at Quartzsite last week, but did not find one that would fit.
