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.
