Carabiners and D-Rings (or shackles) are two different things. There are many times where a D-ring or shackle come in handy on the exterior of a jeep. In about probably 99% of recovery situations you will see at least one D-ring/shackle in use.

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



rather than one of these

Cons_Table 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.

I agree with Jerry

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
