D-ring question

I just purchased a smittybilt xrc10 for my 95 yj. My question is regarding buying a d-ring kit. My issue is that I am no sure what the weight capacity/pull capacity for these things. I am thinking the d-ring would be used with a snatch block, maximum pull 20k lbs. Will this rip the thing off a stock bumper? Will the d-ring just snap? I am trying to get an idea of what I would need in a worst case scenerio (I get stuck in a mud hole with no one to pull me out).

I dont have a rear reciever, so I cant get the one that goes in there. I am asking about the front anyway but just want to be as clear as possible.

it would depend on how they are mounted i would think if you "integrate" them into the bumper bracetry where it mounts to the frame then it would do it

You can just get the tow hooks that bolt in the frame up front for around $20 that will only fail if the frame breaks.
For the rear if they are using a hook style like on a winch line to pull you out, there are holes in the frame specifically made to hook on. They are located on the outside of the frame rail on the upturn to go over the axle
Hope this helps
