I have been using the Roadmaster Sterling for many years now and I am pretty happy/satisfied with it, although I am not a fan of the base plates. Mainly I don't like the looks of them sticking out the front and the adapters can rattle. I took a different approach on our current 2011 Jeep Wrangler and just fabricated a new crossmember/tow point.
I took into account the approach angle and set it slightly back behind and below the front bumper so as to not encroach into my approach angle.
This is what I started with, 1.5" square tube x .250" wall and .375" plate for the attachment points. I made a template for the small brackets and then drilled them and cut the outside dimensions on the bandsaw. The 1.5" square opening I cut with the plasma cutter. I then bolted them together and ground on the disc sander to size them all the exact same on the outside and used a rotary bit to deburr the inside.
Here are the brackets seperated and ready for installation.
On the sides coming down from the frame I used 1/2" plate.
After deburring and a test fit.
Test fit and tack welded.
After final welding and ready to go off to powder coater.
After powder coating. I went with a textured black powder coating to match my bumpers and it also matches my OEM fenders pretty well.
Installed on the Jeep.
It is definetly overkill for the weight of the Jeep but I also wanted it to protect my swaybar just behind it and I have my air tank for my on-board air mounted right above it. I have towed with this particular setup for over 3 years now and love it. It also clears very well when off-raoding.
