D-ring recommendations?

I just installed my rear bumper today and will finish up the tire carrier tomorrow. I want to add some D-rings and understand I need 3/4" with a 7/8" pin. I have looked everywhere online and they seem very expensive to me from various Jeep aftermarket manufacturers. Then I came across 3/4" Galvanized Screw Pin Anchor Shackle - 4.75 Ton

Anyone have a reason these wouldn't work? I'm going to plastidip them to keep some of the noise down knowing they will get damaged when used. But then I just re-shoot when needed.

Those should work fine. I'd make sure that whatever you buy are 3/4" due to the extra strength. I personally went with the ones from poison spyder, but that's because that's where I got my bumper from. I should imagine most d-rings are similar.

If you plan on actually using D-rings, don't cheap out on price!

I bought Crosby. I don't know when or how often I may use them, but when the time comes, I want to make sure they don't crap out at the worst possible time.
