D Ring question

I have a stock bumper on my 87. I want to mount a couple of d rings. Its no a problem finding the rings but I can't find mounts to go with them as a set. I'm looking for the mounts that attach with four bolts. Any help is appreciated.

I was looking at shackles and opted for hooks instead, they are much less expensive.

She is still in the shop, My throttle linkage on the new weber carb was threaded wrong and didn't screw on right. I'm waiting for the new part to come in. D-rings would look much cooler on Florida's military jeep though.

yeah,but,your new welder will probably only weld up to about 1/8 inch thick steel..I would use at least 1/4 inch for the hangers you want..the d ring hangers on the back of badboy are 1/2 inch thick

Yeah, but I have a friend that knows everything in the universe about welding and he's going to teach me and I'm going to learn. He just wants me to start off on a little MIG welder so I don't burn down the house by mistake.
