It looks like it would be good for pulling forward but the design looks like it would be weaker if you pulled on an angle. We have a few different Tow Hooks that you can attach to the frame if you'd feel more comfortable with something like that. Let me know if you have any questions!I have the Mopar Rock crawler front bumper. It has tow hooks on the underside. Would they be strong enough to attach d-rings to? If not, bolting or welding on d-ring mounts would be my other options?
