Re: 3/4\" D ring mounts

by the way. the place that sellsthe 1/2" mounts recomends welding 2 of them side by side to make a 1" mount. sounds pretty thick to me and wasnt sure if it could be welded as solidly. any ideas?

Just go get some 1" x 4" steel plate (if your bumper is 2 x 4). Then drill a hole in it and chop the the corners and grind it down. You want to cut out a rectangular hole on both sides and slide the mount through and weld it on both sides. That's what I did and it is rock solid.

Blue torch fab is where I got mine. Beatifully machined from solid steel. Not too much cost really for what you get.

Re: 3/4\" D ring mounts

OK, since you insist. I did make them for the rear long before I did the front ones. The rear are made from a rectangle piece of 3/16 steel, then 2 pieces of angle iron, and a small piece of tubing.

Re: 3/4\" D ring mounts

Whatever you do make them weld through, surface mount is just waiting for a failure. The only tow point failures I have ever seen is bending (Don't buy the 1/2 inch, they tke very little side loads) hole breaking out and just being pulled slam off the bumper. All that were pulled off were surface mount. Take the extra time and weld them through the main tube, you have doubled your strength.

I use cnc machined 3/4 inch with 1 inch hole. 30.00 for a pair.

Re: 3/4\" D ring mounts

While I agree 100% that thru welding is strongest and safest...... I feel that depending on material, thickness, and design, that a face welded can be plenty strong.

Weld quality is critical of course.

Most buggies I've seen have D rings face welded as well.



Just my opinion though.
