where to get a decent winch hook?

Now that I have my 8274 rebuild, sanblasted and mounted, I really think I want to get a new decent hook. I like the ones at http://www.recoverygear.com but hate their price...$97.00...
Anyone know a source for this type of equipment with better pricing, or have other suggestions?

Re: where to get a decent winch hook?

I went to the local hardware store and just picked out the best looking hook with one of those clip things on it. I think i paid something like 20 bucks.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: where to get a decent winch hook?

Hey - recoverygear.com has the standard winch hooks (they are identical to those that came with the warn winch in the first place) for $7.95. I just got one from them for the 8274 that I bought used - it is the SAME HOOK that came with the HS9500i I bought last fall for another Jeep.
