I through welded 1" steel throught the bumper and drilled a 1" hole for the shackle bolt. Crown Jeep parts or Tractor supply have reasonable galvanized d-rings/shackles that won't rust as quick. I added rubber bushings on shafts so they won't rattle or rust the bumper as quickly.
I also made my bumper removable (bolted) so I can be removed to modify, paint, repair if necessary. 4 @ 1/2" bolts probably would hang the whole Jeep.
