I am assuming that you are thinking about one of these (in which case your statement is correct)
rather than one of these

This is probably as close as you can get to D-Rings on the stock bumper

|GoldenSahara00||You could weld up 1/4 steel on the outside of the bumper top and bottom for the bolts and drop a piece vertically inside an weld it all, then gusset and cut through the stock bumper and the vertical plate and weld trough the d ring mount into it all and it would sit flush. It would work. But for all the time and work put into fabbing it to look clean it would make more sense to buy a new bumper unless you really really enjoy welding.|

|TJspeed||on a stock bumper? it wont hold up to anything. The stock bumpers are soda cans. If you want d-rings and dont wanna spend a whole lot of money get a pro-comp rear bumper with d-rings. I have this bumper and i love it. Amazon.com: Explorer Pro Comp 66168 Black Bumper with D-Ring: Automotive|

|Jerry Bransford||Stock bumpers aren't strong enough for shackles or D-rings. With factory bumpers, the only way to mount them would be to find some that attach on top via the bolts on top that hold the bumper to the frame. With factory bumpers, you're much better off with tow hooks that bolt on top of the front bumper and rear tow hooks that bolt to the frame.|

D-Rings (carabiners) are great for many things.
But almost always less than 1000-pounds
And usually less than 300-pounds.
So the exterior USEFULNESS on a Jeep might be somewhat limited.
But could look cool for aesthetic purposes.
Intenally more useful to sling cargo...but they are secure...not "tight" and thus they allow cargo to "swing and sway" (aka bang and slam) and straps are usually more effective.
But D-rings can still look cool.

Does anyone have ideas where I can put some D-RINGS on my stock bumpers or anywhere else on my TJ ?????
