D ring size -pics-

So I bought these d ring mounts & didnt realize how heavy duty they were.The hole for the d-ring in a 1in hole.Should I be getting a d ring that has a 3/4 or 7/8 pin? The 7/8 d ring is pretty big but I dont want a d ring thats too small. Whats the consensus?

I'm running four 3/4" D-rings w/ 7/8" pins on my bumpers, with 1" holes for the pins.

haha...yeah, they're sturdy. But that's a good thing. If you're buying some, get some Crosby's; they have red pins...and you can get the whole d-ring in red, if you want. They have load limits embossed on their shackles, as well.

a 3/4 inch D-ring is good for much more load than what is required to twist your frame into a pretzel; i wouldn't worry about it.

The ARB ones are rated at 10,000 lbs,have a red pin with load rating stamped on them but a fraction of the cost of Crosbys.Whats special about the Crosbys?

If it's older or off a farm implement, it's probably forged of Pennsylvania steel. An ingot forged 3/4" D-ring is probably good for 30k - 40k lbs, the sand-form molded ones are maybe 10k lbs.

I Liked the weakest link point, made perhaps inadvertently, but how much stress can I put on my 95 galvanized frame before the D ring, like a fuse.. should come unglued. I can double up on attachment points and maybe save my frame from a well intentioned but inexperienced lead foot.

does the red paint indicate anything? I got some d-rings from tractor supply that are black with galvanized pins and I liked the red look so i have thought about painting them red since I already have the paint but I don't want to false advertise for some type of load rating or safety standard.

What he said. If you get one that you know is old, even if its smaller, you won't break it, now way no how.
just my experience with them, and I've had to pull out some heavy stuff

I painted a few of mine, black shackle/ red pin, yellow shackle/red pin. It wears off very fast if you use them, if you powder coated them it would last though.
