If you want protection get a piece of channel.
It’s not pretty but does the job for 98% of its driving. I may trim the corners to give it a better approach angle. Nothing is going to be stronger then channel for the money. It’s structural steel!
edit: forgot to mention there was a dude selling...
Frame of reference, I’ve towed our Audi S6 which weighs about 4,400 on a 16’ open car hauler with the truck loaded inside. Trailer weighs another 1,700. It goes up the grapevine at 40ish. Yes, it sucks but it will do it.
The 80 is on 35”s and it’s been re-geared to 4.88s.
It’s likely your air bag nipple to the hose. If the spring perch is not hogged out enough, with articulation the bags will move with the spring and May not sit properly. You will wind up with a chaffed line or clamp that’s not holding anymore.
