Question about D rings and mounting bracket
 
I bought and installed the olympic 4x4 d ring mounting bracket, the one with no welds. It measures 3/4" and I also ordered 3/4" d rings but they are way too big to fit on the mounts. They slide back and forth with about 1/2" of space. What am I missing? Should I have gotten 1/2" d rings?

they are not a tight fit. Left on they rattle. I carry them in my recovery bag with all the other related stuff. I would not use a "smaller" one. Its about being able to hold a jeep. not looks. I never have them on unless we are in recovery mode or strapping is going to happen a lot, for miles.

You could make some rubber spacers to keep them from bouncing around.

Humm never thought about rubber spacers. I just thought there was supposed to be a snug fit. These slide back and forth with ease about 1/2"

Nope. They aren't made for quietness or daily driving. Put them on when you go offroad, take them off when you are onroad.

Well I wasn't really going for just look, I want functionality. But these things have so much space in between that they move all over

Get some isolators and you won't have to worry with them again http://www.quadratec.com/products/92144_900X_PG.htm and http://www.quadratec.com/products/92144_1900.htm

I went to Lowes and bought some 3/4 rubber grommets. Put one on each side and they don't even think about moving.

Yes, also, if you fix your own toilet valves, the rubber washer included with the fluidmaster valve fits the D rings perfectly. Probably any other kit would work too. The rubber washer that fits the hole that goes through the bottom of the toilet to the water supply line.

Cool I'll check tomorrow and get back to you
Thanks

Well thanks for the great idea. Put the grommets on and now it fits snug.

Thanks
