I was interested in a set of these as well but thought the same thing. Do they mount to the matrix or directly to the frame? Anyone know/have a pair? Thanks

I think he's talking about the nut plate, or "sandwich" plate.

I only find 4xGuard $180 with no sandwich plate and the $133 ones on ebay with no sandwich plate.

I have searched and searched.... Where do I find that sandwich plate without buying an $170 OEM tow hook kit? It's a freakin plate of steel. I'd just make one if I had a pattern. the 4xGuard kit should come with that plate. I called 4xGuard but the person really had no clue to what I was talking about and was no help.

What do you guys think about tracing a template on a peice of paper over the mounting brakets to align the bolt holes. Then cut one out of cardboard and refine until it fits in-place with bolts installed. Then go to local metal shop and have them cut 2 out. 1/8" thick plate steel?

It's a really basic design. I would just take off your bumper and measure the space between the two mounting holes in the frame rail and just cut out a plate of 1/4" steel with the holes placed where you measured. Sorry if that doesn't make sense. I think I have a picture of them when I was installing my S4XC shackles...I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: I don't have a picture of the actual sandwich plate but here's a picture of the shackle. The sandwich plate would line up with the two holes on the right. It wouldn't be too hard to make but you're right, the 4xGuard ones should definitely come with them considering the price.

Ok good info about the 2 bolt sandwhich plate. The $22 4XGuard brackets only have two bolts and I thought it was wrong because of that. It must be correct then. I remember now the oem sandwich plates have two pieces for each bracket sandwhich. A 2 bolt plate and a 1 bolt plate. Why no 1 bolt plate for the single bolt on the other side? I guess a fender washer or two is better than nothing. Comments?

The weight rating is the important point.

Last thing you need is a d-ring projectile.

What should it be rated at?

What is the mopar hook rated at?
What is the 4xguard rated at?
The ebay ones said working load of 5500lbs.

The Jeep is what 4200 to 4700 lbs .. and stuck in some suction mud you need what pull weight ?
