XJ D-Ring Mount?

Hi all,
Does anyone know of a bolt-on D-Ring mount for the front on an XJ?

Rusty's 4x4 used to have one, IDK if they still do. If you know anybody at a machine shop, making one is a simple project. I made a set for myself a while back.

If you don't want to go to an aftermarket bumper I suggest a front 2 inch receiver hitch. Stouter and better at taking off angle pulls than the tow hook setups.

I like that set-up a lot. Any chance you could post some more pictures?

To start, the towbar had a piece of 3/16x2x2" angle across the front.

That came off to use a TJ winch plate from Rough Country.

I used some scrap angle to fab up some mounts for the Teraflex d-ring mounts.20180420_175913_1571182565566.jpg

Couldn't be any tighter without removing the front crossmember. 20180829_202953_1571183058082.jpg20180729_202744_1571183120685.jpg

Don't know the brand. It was welded on when I bought it. I've seen a few that are the same 3pc modular design though. Reese makes one.
