Thanks man. Hopefully I can get the functionality I'm looking for by doing that. I'll provide some pictures and pass / fail results.

TO make them look even better, you can weld the shackle bracket to the outside of the bumper, to give it a cleaner look.

The reason that I personally will be using these, is that I go on trails where I need a good departure angle. When I had my trailer hitch mounted up it would always drag. Now that I have taken my hitch off and move my tire into the cargo area while wheeling, I have MUCH better departure angle, but no rear recovery points because I took off my hitch.

With my design, they should still be compatible with the stock trailer hitch, which I know is a MUST for many people.

I'm just curious how much people would be willing to pay for these. It would be much cheaper than buying a Shrock or similar bumper with recovery points.

So how much would you pay for a well built, strong, good looking set?
I've been wanting to do this.. I would be willing to buy these if the price was right and was good quality, of course

Would these just mount just the same as the trailer hitch does?

Yes, I'm digging this post up from the grave.

I want to get a pair of those recovery points for the rear bumper.

Jack, if you're still around and willing to make those, I'll take a set. Could they be built thicker? Maybe the thickness of the D-ring itself. I'll send you a PM, also.
