    Tube bumper d ring mounts

    Well I been trying to figure out how to mount d rings on front and back of my 3 inch tube bumpers.I looked at the weld on type but figured out a better way.I used high test 3/8 heavy grade logging chain at 12 inch length.5/8 x5 inch length hex bolt with flat and lock washers with nut. Tighten down very snug and worked out great. With the right amount of torque they do not move or bounce up and down. Anyway I think they look great and function well.
    Hope this helps anybody facing this issue.IMG_3224.JPGIMG_3226.JPG

    Tube bumper d ring mounts

    Uhhh. What bumpers are they and do you have any idea how thick the tubing is? Seems a bit unsafe. Looking at that bolt as well what grade is it?

    These welds don’t look like something I would put force on. If I were you I’d look into other options like a hitch d ring receiver.

    If you are tolling, ok

    but really, that's not the way to do what you are tying to do. Those types of bumpers are very thin, no made for pulling no matter how you attach the mount.

    Tube bumper d ring mounts

    Truthfully I don’t think that’s remotely a good idea. Like at all. Those tube bumpers have very very thin hollow tubing that they are made out of and I would not be surprised if those tore right through the first time you went to pull somebody or get pulled.

    If I were you I would highly suggest looking into an actual bumper that has integrated D ring mounts. Offroad Evo and Poison Spyder have good options as well as a few other brands (LOD, Genright, etc).

    Btw I noticed the dealer badge. I worked at troncalli for a few years ironically.

    Tube bumper d ring mounts

    Let’s disregard the damage to your bumper those will cause WHEN they fail and address the safety concern when they turn into a kinetic piece of shit flying towards whatever poor sap who doesn’t have the common sense to look at those and say fuck that! Or some bystander. Jesus dude, you realize the forces involved on recovery gear and points?? Do yourself a favor and use a ball hitch with a kinetic strap for recovery while you’re at it.

    There are white people levels. Redneck = lives in the woods probably down a dirt road. Hillbilly = so far back in the woods that only Sasquatch knows your address

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
