Default D-ring Shackle Mounts

Where can I buy some d-rings shackle mounts cheaper than the ones here: http://www.redrock4x4.com/shop/categories/228_250.html

I thought I had seen some on Blue Torch Fab's website but I can't find them now. Any other vendors that sell them?

I want them to be clean and Jayce said that he could make them but they wouldn't look as good as the laser cut ones. For $15 each as shown in the link above, I think it will be worth just buying them. It will save us some time.

You going be able to swing by on March 10-11 for my bumper build? That is the tentative date we have set. I am abuot 90% sure I will be able to make it down that weekend.

The Red Rock ones are from Poison Spyder.

But If you make your own you can make them look as good as you want it just depends on the time you spend on them. But yeah 15 bucks is not bad almost worth the time you would spend making them.

But I like the Long one from Rockstomper because you can weld it on both sides.

I have some. I build bumpers and I have some that look exactly like the ones in the pic. 1 inch thick with a 7/8 hole for a 3/4" shackle. They are cnc machined and the back side is already beveled for welding. if you are still in the market, they are $15 each...

I have a large quantity. if you know anyone who needs more, send them my way.

Get long ones that weld all the way through....

I got mine from EMS offroad and was very happy, especially when they were only 30 bucks for both of 'em...1" thick and 5" long....can't beat 'em

Made my own... cost about $5 for materials plus about an hour worth of work... If youíre going to buy them, get the ones that are long enough to go all the way through the bumper and weld both sides...

I agree. The mounts that go all the way through the bumper are much stronger! More surface area for the weld=better!

You can always make some. All it takes is a big fucking drill, a belt sander and some patience. Maybe saw the corners off first before you go at it with the belt sander.

What's the torch for? The steel is $5, and you can get the drill bit for about $20 and have the metal yard cut it to the length for you want for about a buck

Hrm.... I still like my d-ring/hook points better!

1/2" cold rolled plate. 1 1/2" Hole






Though the A to Z ones are a great price for two.

There are some on ebay as well. The ones that go all the way through 2" box sell for $18 plus like $8 for shipping. I'm looking for some that will go all the way through 3" box though, so they need to be atleast 5" long.

What is the EMS offroad you speak of? Got a link?

i don't think that passing the mounts trough the bumper is such necessary. Flux Core welding got 70 000kg/cm3 of resistance depending on your wire. Just apply a good 3pass welding all around the mounts and forget about bend them...

Its not the wire you are welding with ness. but more the material you are welding to.

I'm sure in a lot of cases, this would be fine, but why not? Itís easy to do and much safer... I KNOW that mine will never rip off...

Exactly, so... anyone know where I can find some to fit 3" tube? I've found some people that are willing to mfg me some, but that's like 2-3 weeks out, and like the spoiled bastard that I am, I want them now!!!

I might try and make my own, but grinding on 1" steel just doesnt sound like fun. That, and I don't have a drill press and I broke enough bits tonight on 3/8" stock.

Some places won't do recoverys like at Takeover in Arkansas last year if the mounts are simply welded on. They recommend through welding or bolt on recovery points. But then again it is your buddy pulling most of the time anyways. What do they care. FYI mine are just welded to the front.
