What kind of welder did you use to weld the 1" tab for the d-ring? Is your bumper tied into the frame at all, or just bolted to the crossmember with 8 bolts?

I'd guess this is a little more than what you had in mind but…




The roller fairlead has been added since.

the tab was welded with a wire-feed. i bought a stick welder from a guy and he welded the end caps and the tab for me. it's not welded to the frame cause i don't think it's going anywhere. i've towed guys with it already and no prob. if it gives, i'll re-build stronger.

I finished mine up a few weeks ago. 4"X4"X3/16" box with the mounts made from 3/8" plate, extending thru the box. The rear is similar, but a single straight hunk of box. They held up very good in a recent to trip to Windrocks!
