Front mounted hitch sourcing issues

I was looking at putting a part-time winch install onto the front of my 05 1500 Z71. I was wondering if the hitch for the 2500 from Curt (#31108 ) would fit the 1500 with modifications to the bumper valance (hole in it) to use the receiver. I am having a hard time sourcing the part listed to fit the 1500 which hangs out under the valance (#31302).

Or any other suggestions....

Just purchased and Instaled A WARN Reciver Kit #66215
This is on My 02 Z71 Clad

Cost was under $190 Install time little over 2 Hr.
(with help from my 3 year old) From getting tools to clean up.

Install Required drilling of Four 7/16" Holes in to frame rails.

Also Cuting a 3"wide slot just under the license plate, for the reciver to stick through.

Install of bolts are english and metric.(I used all Metric tools and got through the install, 10mm, 17mm, 19mm sockets and open end Wrenches are needed.
Used 7/16"drill and dry wall knife to cut front clading.

Also used BLUE Loc-Tite on all nuts and bolts.

I also installed the Warn 66215 front receiver on my '05 Z71 cladded AV. I bought it on amazon in 2009 but it shows as not available there now.
