D ring shckle mount

Does anyone have experience with the TeraFlex Bumper D-Ring Mount Kit(http://www.quadratec.com/products/92146_111.htm). Any reviews? I would be using it on a stock 2000 jeep wrangler bumper.

I would not use it on a stock bumper.. not enough metal and if using it to pull might send it flying.. if you need a tow point just add some tow hook for 20 bucks..

I would add tow hooks, but the problem is that I have $400 PIAA driving lights next to the bolts for the bumper to the frame. If a tow strap happens to snap, I don't want to lose one of the lights. Any suggestions?

I would rather lose the light than the whole jeep... redrill them out further perhaps?

I looked at doing that but it would only move it about 4 inches. Are there any sturdy light covers for 580 series PIAA driving lights.

Could you make some sort of fast relase mount for them and thus remove when on the trail?

if you had the $ to spend that on lights invest in a bumper with D-ring shackles and the lights will be out of the way with the bumper light mounts TADA! http://www.quadratec.com/products/12052_3XX_PG.htm http://www.quadratec.com/products/12046_000_07.htm

I was looking at the easiest way to go without spending $300 on a new bumper, but that sounds like the best option.

I will sell you my slightly modified Warn Rock Crawler bumper for 100$. Not a scratch on it, still has that fresh powder coat finish.

I was just kidding with you, unless you are really interested. It has been bent at about a 90* angle on the pass side from when I smacked that tree. Funny thing is the paint didn't crack or chip. Even at the bend. I am planning on either cutting off both ends and making it a true stubby. Or cutting off the bad side and recreating the good side. Unless you are truly interested in damaged goods. I tried to straiten it and exploded my table vice.
