Where can I mount these?

A friend of mine gave me a pair of D-rings this weekend. I don't know where to mount them though because I have stock bumpers. Any ideas?

They also have them that you can bolt on to your top bolts of ur front bumper that will work with a stock bumper

Try this:

Heavy Duty Clevis / D-ring Tab

Then find a buddy with a welder

If you have a rear hitch you can replace the ball with the D-Ring for a secure towing point.

That's more like it. When it say's perfect for 7/8" d-rings, does that mean 7/8" bolt?

As long as it was directly in line with where the frame attaching bolts were I don't see a problem with it
