I still think you should make those winch brackets and sell em The one you made for yours is really good.

looks good! its been widely debated but i would not use those rings for any type of recovery, just for looks.
if they are welded to the face dont use em
just use your hitch

EDIT:
strange coincidence, came across this article on the crapper

Thanks, I've been pondering that still. trying to figure some things out as far as shipping would go and all. and the Liability issues that go with making it and trying to sell it.

well, I am still waiting to order the clevis tabs for it, just put those on for the time being. wont ever use them to recover a stuck vehicle or anything, mainly for towing dow the road if anything. gonna get the clevis tabs and cut out holes through the bumper and weld em really well. I have used the ones on the front winch bracket many times with just the winch. also had them on an old truck I had pulled it out of of very deep mud with a dozer and nothing broke then. but I understand the concern thanks. ready to get the clevis tabs and get some perty clevis' on the back.
