I through welded 1" steel throught the bumper and drilled a 1" hole for the shackle bolt. Crown Jeep parts or Tractor supply have reasonable galvanized d-rings/shackles that won't rust as quick. I added rubber bushings on shafts so they won't rattle or rust the bumper as quickly.

I also made my bumper removable (bolted) so I can be removed to modify, paint, repair if necessary. 4 @ 1/2" bolts probably would hang the whole Jeep.

kfdjason7620 For my back bumper I made the shackle mounts out if 1" plate to go all the way through front and back, in other words, the bumper bolts will let go before shackle mounts will

kfdjason7620 I have original tow hooks on the front and shackles on the back, but I have tightened my shackles up with an adjustable wrench to keep them from getting stolen, but really don't have to worry about that here

nastyrider17 I welded mine to the frame. 1/4 thick so my bumper will for sure outlast my frame. Put plates on the top and bottom of both sides as well. I bet you could weld like I did to the bumper, but bolt onto the frame. I could get some pics.

kfdjason7620 You got it!!

a_springfield that is what I was thinking I would do I should be able to bend them or weld them up. I think I am over thinking it a little

kfdjason7620 2 pieces of metal formed into a "C" and welded onto the back of the tubing will work perfectly, Idk the exact dimensions, but I can get em tomorrow and make you a set ready to weld on
