Help, Need D Ring Adapter for Tow Bar

Does anyone know what D Ring Adapter will work on a Blue Ox or TowMaster Falcon 2. I need to get this set up before vaction time.

My D ring takes a 3/4" Shackle and I believe that it is a 7/8" pin

We build them at our shop. Each one is made specific for your bumper, type and size of Clevis mounts, and what type of tow bar you have.

I have just ordered the aluminum xhd bumper and I have the Falcon II tow bar system mentioned above. I assume that I will not be able to just slide my tow bar ends into the space for the d-ring mounts and pop in my tow bar pins.

Can you post photos of your solution for this set up?
Thanks,
Hud

Thanks. The only solution that I have seen so far is a RoadMaster bolt on mounting bracket that replaces the bolt on D-ring bracket that holds the bumper on to the frame. Looks like you lose the D-rings with that solution.

I ended up using the Worrier brackets and had a weld shop modify them to fit my Tow Bar. It worked out great

Did you come up with anything? I have installed my new XHD bumper and am looking at tow bar bracket adapter solutions.

Before I unsubscribe, I wanted to post my solution. I got an L-head grinder and I ground out the space in between the D-ring mounting points so that the tow bar will mount directly to the Rugged Ridge XHD bumper. I also had to cut about 1/8 inch off the width of the tow bar mounts. Lastly, I bought a 10" rise receiver adaptor so that the tow bar is level when it is connected. Easy fix.
