I have a similar bumper and I am really happy with it. The D Rings should be 3/4"

They are 33's. I have a good connection for powder coated d rings if you ever need more. The bumper is really heavy and the winch doesn't help but I never noticed any front end sag. I have 1.5" suspension and 1" BB.

D-rings, does anyone know of a place that would sell them locally, I tried advance and auto zone, also I stopped by uhaul because they do towing... There's got to be a place that sells them locally!
I know, locally is a relative term

A tractor supply would have them.
You can also check any local 4x4 shops.

Search for eBay user 4wd-winchlines they mostly sell synthetic winch lines but they have a great source for powder coated D Rings and the shipping is really fast.

I just bought these clevis shackles from tractor supply yesterday for about $10 a piece, they have an 8,500 pounds working load limit and are coated black. I went with the half inch, 3/4 looked too big for my bumper and nearly obnoxious.

I'm not sure, mine are 3 and a half inches long so maybe you can make a decision based on my photo.

I use the 3/4 because the working load is 4.75 tons. The 1/2 inch is usually only 2 tons. I've seen horrible accidents from recovery straps giving way. Plus I think the beefy shackle looks a lot better.

I don't know anything about the bolts, my apologies. Just offering a solution to the clevis shackles. Good luck though.

Yeah I made sure not to go with a cheap one, mine had a WLL of 3 1/4 ton. More than enough likely.

They are not welded. At least mine were not.

Mine were welded on so it took me about 30 min start to finish. Little pb blaster an a pipe on the end of my ratchet.



Little paint too to clean up the suspension ( you can see the rust in the pic )

Thanks! I love the bumper, it's a Cattlemans (cattlemanhd.com) I think it's severely overpriced compared to the Smittybuilt. I paid around $650 and I think the smitty is like $250.

I installed a smittybilt SRC rock crusher today. Was very simple. Seems very well built.
