Rear bumper mods?

Hello everyone,
I went to the junk yard the other day and picked up a tj bumper for pretty cheap. Has anyone ever welded mods onto them?
I would like to put a receiver on and two d ring mounts.
I have access to a nice welder but dont have a lot of welding experience. Please dont give me an earful about how i shouldnt do it myself because ill probably just do it anyway but tips would be nice.
Thanks

do not weld anything to a stock TJ bumper that will be used for recovery or towing.

that only works on aftermarket bumpers b/c they are 3/16th or 1/4" steel. the stock bumper little more than sheet metal.

you can weld small things onto it. but nothing that will see much force at all.

Sell it and make a profit and use it to buy steel or a better bumper.
