2001 Chevy burb front receiver options

Hey guys I got a 2001 suburban 4x4 with a 9in lift, (6inches suspension and 3 inches body). I was wondering what options I have to put a front receiver on it and keep the factory bumper. Iíve had a tahoe same body style and put a ranchhand bullnose on to get the receiver but I kinda want to keep the front factory looking this time. I want to be able to use it for a winch or for a fishing rod rack. I wasnít sure if there were any bolt on kits that maybe I just cut the bump a little bit or even come out under the bumper since I have it high already.

I don't have personal experience, but Curt and DrawTite both make a bolt-on front receiver hitch. Curt appears to be no-drill but may interfere with the valance, whereas DrawTite hangs down lower but requires drilling a couple holes.

I bought the curt. Since I had a body lift it was hanging sorta low so I flipped it upside down and it worked great with a little trimming. Also going to drill a couple holes on the side plates to mount shackles. Found it on amazon for 133 bucks. Worth every penny.
