Just 5/16" plate? I thought it had to be thicker than that!

Maybe thicker I don't know I didn't measure it. It was some scrap steel that I had laying around. 5/16 does sound small though.

Oh okay! Well do you think you could please measure for me and let me know whenever you can?

Thank you so much! I've been wanting to make some because I kinda went the cheap route and didnt order a bumper with d rings.

5/16 is slightly more than a 1/4", which will hold up to a lot if you "respect" it. If I was "bad" stuck I would take a wrap around the bumper rather than pull on the D ring. I'm not sure I remember correctly, but I think Besrk recommends 1" thickness on his sticky in the Fabrication section. That is not "the rule", however, just a recommendation.

Thanks! I think every d ring mount I've seen is around an inch thick!

Ya. I didn't have any 1 inch stock. I can always go through the bumper.

Today after school I went to try and see of anyone could press out ball joints for me in the knuckles before powder. And no one would give me any respect. They just look down upon me and kinda just sit there and smirk with me standing right there. Oh how I just wanna see what they could do at my age.

Don't lose faith man, you're the ****! Those guys are all bogus, ship um to me and I'll push em out for you. Or rent the ball joint pusher from auto zone. That's what I did for my truck.

I went to oriellys and we tried there and they wouldn't budge thats why I went other places. I know that I'm better than them any way. Haha I will run over there vehicle with my cj if I see them. Haha that bumper will get tested out.

Haha, nice

I had to use a huge breaker bar (seriously like 3' long) on my ball joints. I'd rather use my impact, but it didn't fit anywhere cause I had my axle under the truck while I was playing with it.

It's the same way with me! I think it's an "O'Reily's" thing though. Every time I go there they look down on me and every time I leave their jaws are on the ground and they can't say anything. It's so easy to shut them up since they really don't know as much as they think they do. I'm friends with everyone at the autozone that I go to buy when I go to the other ones that happens.

I haven't had to do mine on my jeep yet but I had to use a 6 foot breaker bar on my bronco just to get them loose! Lol

No oriellys I'd helpful. The shops laughed. The people at oriellys really try to help.
