its thursday now where are the pictures???
Sorry got sidetracked and still havent gotten around to the bumpers for our cherokee, thus the reason for no pics.
About your D rings on the bumpers, Would you be willing to make It so that they are D ring mounts? like how Most other companies do it? I just dont trust that little guy, or its mount, and what not. Other than that. I'm very impressed with those bumpers!
Also, You should post pictures up of the mounting system on both bumpers.
As for a new product, I could see an interior roll bar assembly being a fairly cheap to manufacture product, with good return.
The d-ring mounts that you speak of are an option already(+$15), but are called weld through studs for clevises. "Clevis" is the technical name of the removable shackle type d-rings you speak of. 3/4" Clevises can be included for an additional $30.
As far as the strength of the d-rings that are included as listed, they are 6300lb WLL, with a break strength of 19k. I myself have put them to the test several times, completely bogging down an 8k winch, and have never had a failure nor have I had any reported.
I will post pictures tomorrow as I finish some front bumpers of the as is mounts, as well as the extended mounts that are optional.
If I get to rear bumpers tomorrow, I will also snap some of those.
Front skids (that go bumper down to the axle like the stock one, but beefier), control arm skids, etc.
I'll definitely keep them in mind...I am definitely looking into producing skids for TJs, XJs and JKs in the near future.
